RE: The tariff classification of cosmetic bag sets from China.

Dear Ms. Cline:

In your letter dated April 23, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling on cosmetic bag sets.

The samples submitted, style numbers SG374, SG401, SG402, SG403 and SG328, are four-in-one cosmetic bag sets composed of PVC vinyl. The bags are imported and sold at retail sale as sets; nested one within the other. The sizes range from approximately 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" for the smaller bags, to approximately 8" x 6 1/2" for the larger bags. They are secured by means of top textile zippered closures.

The applicable subheading for style numbers SG374, SG401, SG402, SG403 and SG328, the cosmetic bag sets of PVC vinyl, will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, 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.
