RE: Jewelry Pouch; Modification of HRL 086083

Dear Mr. Shoichet:

This letter modifies Headquarters Ruling Letter (HRL) 086083 dated March 5, 1990, in which a nylon satin pouch with drawstring closure designed to carry or store women's jewelry was classified in subheading 4202.92.9020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), under the provision for trunks, suitcases...and similar containers...other, other, other, other, of man-made fibers.

However, Additional U.S. Note 1, Chapter 42, HTSUSA, provides:

For the purposes of heading 4202, the expression "travel, sports and similar bags" means goods, other than those falling in subheadings 4202.11 through 4202.39, of a kind designed for carrying clothing and other personal effects during travel, including backpacks and shopping bags of this heading, but does not include binocular cases, camera cases, musical instrument cases, bottle cases and similar containers.

The article in question is designed for carrying personal effects during travel and is therefore comprehended by the expression "travel, sports and similar bags." Consequently, the nylon satin pouch at issue is classifiable in subheading 4202.92.3030, HTSUSA, under the provision for trunks, suitcases...and similar containers..., other, with outer surface of plastic sheeting or of textile materials, travel, sports and similar bags, other, other, of man-made fibers, other. The article is dutiable at 20 percent ad valorem; the textile category is 670.

Pursuant to section 177.9, Customs Regulations (19 CFR 177.9), HRL 086083 of March 5, 1990, is modified in conformity with the foregoing.
