RE: The tariff classification of a PVC knife sheath from China.

Dear Mr. Mattson:

In your letter dated July 1, 1993, on behalf of Variant, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling for a PVC knife sheath.

The sample submitted, no style number indicated, described as a "PVC Pouch", is a PVC knife sheath designed to slide over a pocket knife. The sheath is flat in design and measures approximately 1 1/4" x 2 1/4". You have stated that the sheath will be imported separately without the knife.

The applicable subheading for the knife sheath of PVC will be 4202.92.9040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, holsters and similar containers, other, other, 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.

Area Director
