RE: The tariff classification of a cosmetic/toiletry carrying case from China and/or Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Eisen:

In your letter dated May 19, 1995, on behalf of Avon Products, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling for a cosmetic/toiletry carrying case.

The sample submitted, identified as item PP-130328, is a cosmetic/toiletry carrying case composed of molded plastic. The interior features a fitted mirror within the hinged lid, a removal multi-sectional top tray designed to hold various cosmetics and/or toiletry products. It measures approximately 9 inches in length by 4 1/2 inches in height. The item has a heart-shaped plastic carrying handle and latch closure. Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Item PP-130328, the cosmetic/toiletry carrying case of molded plastic, will be 4202.12.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases vanity cases and similar containers, with outer surface of plastics, structured, rigid on all sides. The rate of duty 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.
