RE: The tariff classification of a CHANGE PURSE from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms Spivey:

In your letter dated January 14, 1994, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client East Coast Imports, Goldsboro, NC.

The item is a small change purse approximately 3" square. The top closure is controled by side springe hinges. The outer surface consist of a texiled backed plastic sheeting. The sheeting is considered reinforced/laminated.

The applicable subheading for the CHANGE PURSE will be 4202.32.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic or of textile materials, of reinforced or laminated plastic. The rate of duty will be 12.1›/kg plus 4.6% 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.

District Director
Providence, R.I.
