RE: The tariff classification of Elephants Clocks from China.

Dear Ms. Ramsey:

In your letter dated February 26, 2008 you requested a tariff classification ruling. A sample of the elephants clock was submitted with your ruling request.

The elephants clock, SKU number 65240, is a stand-up clock accented with two elephants challenging one another while a third elephant watches from the rock ledge above them. The elephants clock is battery operated with a quartz movement and easy-to-read numbers. One AAA battery is required but not included. The elephants clock measures approximately 6½ inches long by 1¼ inches wide by 7 inches high. The main part of the clock is made of 100% polyresin, the clock’s face and the gold rim around the face is made of 100% ABS plastic, the black and red hands are made of 100% iron and the battery casing is made of 100% polypropylene.

The applicable subheading for the elephants clocks will be 9105.91.80, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other clocks; other; electrically operated; other. The rate of duty will be 30 cents each plus 6.9 percent on the case plus 5.3 percent on the battery.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
