TARIFF NO.: 4202.32.1000

Ms. Maria Gallego
27 Blake Avenue
Lynbrook, NY 11563

RE: The tariff classification of a ticket/passport case from China.

Dear Ms. Gallego:

In your letter dated October 9, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Customcraft Industries, Inc., 50 Rose Place, Garden City Park, NY.

The sample submitted, style #4451, is a ticket/passport case. The case is approximately 9 1/2" x 4 1/2" (closed) and has an outer surface of PVC sheet with a textile backing. The purpose of the case is to hold tickets and a passport during travel.

The applicable subheading for Style #4451 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, of reinforced or laminated plastic. The rate of duty will be 12.1›/kg + 4.6 per cent ad valorem.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

Note: PD A81015 (3-26-96) and reconsideration NY A86873 (9-13-96) involved a document case style #4451. The importer was also located at 50 Rose Place, Garden City Park, NY. The case ruled on was the same style number, but the outer surface of PVC did not have a textile backing.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 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.


Richard A. Barrette
Service/Area Port Director
