RE: The tariff classification of Samsonite part #2200202001, "Wet Pak" accessory from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Ramos:

In your letter dated August 9, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Samsonite part #2200202001, "Wet Pak", is a removable travel accessory designed to be carried within a garment bag. You have indicated that the "Wet Pak" will be sold at retail with the garment bag. It measures 18" wide by 33" long and has a removable metal wire hanger protruding from the top. The "Wet Pak" is manufactured of a nylon back panel with front panels of clear and printed plastic sheeting materials. The front panel has two zippered compartments which are intended to contain soiled clothing when traveling. One of the compartments is also capable of containing toiletries. Part #2200202001 is a travel bag similar to a travel lingerie or toilet bag which is designed to be carried within another luggage article.

The "Wet Pak" may be imported separately or with the garment bag. You have not indicated the composition of the garment bag.

The applicable subheading for the "Wet Pak", part #2200202001, will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases ... traveling bags ..., with outer surface of plastic sheeting or of textile materials, travel, sports and similar bags, other. The rate of duty will be 20% ad valorem.

When imported with the garment bag, the "Wet Pak" will be considered a set as provided by GRI 3 (b), HTS, dutiable at the rate applicable to the garment bag.

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.
