RE: The tariff classification of a bifold wallet from China.

Dear Sir:

In your letter dated May 21, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Colony One Trading Corp., Brooklyn, NY.

The sample submitted with your request, manufacturer's style 2062, is a bifold wallet approximately 4" x 5" in size closed and 9" x 5" in size opened. The interior is fitted with areas to hold folding money, licenses and other similar personal papers. The wallet is kept closed with a velcro type strip. The outer surface is a sheeting of plastic of reinforced or laminated plastic.

The applicable subheading for Style 2062 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 plastics.

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.
