RE: The tariff classification of a vinyl lipstick case from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Bosseckert:

In your letter dated May 20, 1992, on behalf of Revlon, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling on a vinyl lipstick case.

The sample submitted is a vinyl lipstick case designed with a fitted mirror within the lid. The item is of the type designed to be carried in the handbag. It is lined with textile materials and measures approximately 3 1/2" x 1 1/4" x 1 1/4". The case is secured by means of a flap with a metal snap closure. Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the lipstick case of vinyl will be 4202.32.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of plastic sheeting, other. The duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.

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.
