RE: The tariff classification of a novelty backpack from China.

Ms. Millie Yang
2511 East, 2nd Street
2nd Floor
Brooklyn, NY 11223

Dear Ms. Yang:

In your letter dated June 30, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your request, no style number, is a novelty backpack in the likeness of a puppy dog. The head and feet of the dog are constructed of a plush textile material. The entire body is constructed of a PVC sheeting. The backpack has two textile web shoulder straps and a zipper closure in the belly.

The applicable subheading for the backpack will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, other. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.

Currently items classified under HTS 4202.92.4500 are not subject to visa or quota.

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.

Service/Area Port Director
