RE: Clarification of HQ 959524, dated November 4, 1996

Dear Mr. Marlow:

This is in regard to Headquarters Ruling Letter (HQ) 959524 issued to you from this office on November 4, 1996. In HQ 959524 Customs determined the country of origin of an eyeglass pouch pursuant to Section 102.21, Customs Regulations (19 CFR 102.21). Additionally, the analysis discussed whether the subject eyeglass pouch qualified for preferential tariff treatment pursuant to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) as per Article 401. Upon further review, Customs has determined that the holding stated in HQ 959524 should be clarified.

Although the holding correctly stated that the eyeglass pouch was eligible for the NAFTA preference, it did not clearly indicate the rate of duty for that commodity. As such, this is to inform you that the applicable rate of duty for the eyeglass pouch is 4 percent ad valorem.
