RE: The tariff classification of sunglasses in a textile pouch, from Italy

Dear Mr. Liberati:

In your letter dated November 11, 1997, on behalf of Ultimate Vision, you requested a tariff classification ruling on sunglasses.

The sunglasses are composed of plastic material and will be imported in a soft nylon drawstring pouch. The sunglasses and pouch are packaged in a cardboard box, which also contains an information sheet. According to your letter, the cardboard box with its contents is intended for retail sale to the consumer.

The applicable subheading for the sunglasses imported in the nylon drawstring pouch will be 9004.10.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for spectacles, goggles and the like, corrective, protective or other; sunglasses. The rate of duty will be 4.1 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty in 1998 for subheading 9004.10.0000 will be 3 percent 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 Barbara Kiefer at 212-466-5685.
