RE: The tariff classification of an automotive litter bag from China

Dear Mr. Riley:

In your letter dated July 30, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Allison Corporation of Livingston, New Jersey.

The item concerned (shown at top of Pg. 2) is a square, gray, nylon bag with a flap which covers the open top. The bag and top flap are trimmed with black textile. There is a tab of black textile, with black Velcro sewn on the inside, sewn in the middle front of the top flap; this attaches to a black, textile strip sewn to the front of the nylon bag. The sides of the bag are creased so that the bag can collapse. Inside the bag is a cardboard liner and several plastic bags of a size which allows them to hang on the liner. Sewn on the back of the bag is a 24 " belt of black textile with a hard plastic buckle attached to one end. A 12¬", black, elastic cord with a metal hook on the end is attached, through a hole, to the bottom of the bag. The bag, itself, when extended, measures 12"H X 8 "W X 5" in depth.

You state that the purpose of the item is to be used as an automotive litter bag. You further state that it will be manufactured by Aser Industries, Ltd. of Kowloon, Hong Kong [MID #HKASEIND2122HON] and will be imported through Maher Terminal or Berth 88 in Elizabeth, New Jersey via Yangming Line or Hanjin Shipping Corp.

The applicable subheading for the automotive litter bag will be 8708.99.8080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of . . . motor vehicles . . . : Other parts and accessories: Other: Other: Other: Other: Other:. The rate of duty will be 2.9% 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 Robert DeSoucey at 212-466-5667.
