RE: The tariff classification of a compact disc container from China.

Dear Mr. Barrett:

In your letter dated November 6, 1991, you requested a classification ruling on a compact disc container.

You have submitted a sample of what appears to be an unfinished container designed to hold compact discs. It is said to be constructed of 100% cotton textile material and has a snap closure.

You have indicated that the container in its finished condition will have a PVC insert designed to hold a capacity of 20 compact discs.

The applicable subheading for the compact disc holder will be 4202.92.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Trunks, suitcases...spectacle cases, binocular cases...cutlery cases and similar containers...of textile materials: other: of cotton. The duty rate will be 7.2% ad valorem.

Subheading 4202.92.6000 falls within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile agreements, products of China are subject to visa requirements.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, to obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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.
