RE: The tariff classification of restaurant check presenters from China.

Dear Mr. Koh:

In your letter dated August 19, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The restaurant check presenters will be used by waiters and waitresses to bring the bill to the restaurant's customers. A sample was submitted. It is composed of a cellular plastics surface backed on one side with a textile fabric for reinforcement. Some of the check presenters will be composed of composition leather.

The applicable subheading for those check presenters composed of plastics will be 3926.90.9590, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for those check presenters composed of composition leather will be 4205.00.8000, HTS, which provides for other articles of leather or of composition leather, other. The rate of duty will be free.

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.
