RE: The tariff classification of a shopper tote from China.

Dear Mr. Plenby:

In your letter dated August 22, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a shopper tote.

The sample submitted, identified as style BKI, is composed of PVC with an outer surface of clear plastic sheeting designed to contain personal effects during travel. The bag is unique in that in its original position it is flat and resembles a place mat. The item is designed with cut-outs so that when in use the bag extends to proportions of approximately 13 1/4" x 12" x 6 3/4". Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Style BKI, the shopper tote of plastic sheeting, 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 sheeting of plastic, other. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem. This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Kevin Gorman at 212-466-5893.
