RE: The tariff classification of an "expanding file" from China.

Dear Ms. Dugan:

In your letter dated July 3, 1990, on behalf of Target Stores, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample was submitted and will be returned as requested. It is an "expanding file" (style 33-014) composed of several paperboard dividers which are permanently mounted, accordion style, inside a cover that, when closed, resembles a photo album or looseleaf binder. The cover is made of stiff paperboard covered with a patterned textile fabric. The article measures about 10 x 12 x 4 inches and incorporates a satin ribbon closure.

The applicable subheading for the style 33-014 "expanding file" will be 4820.30.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for binders, folders and file covers, of paper or paperboard, other than looseleaf binders. The rate of duty will be 5.3%.

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

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.

Area Director
