RE: The tariff classification of a 3 ring binder from China.

Dear Ms. Johnson:

In your letter dated July 30, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample of the 3 ring binder was submitted. The sample binder has an outer surface of cellular plastics backed with a plain woven textile fabric. The binder has a removable 3 ring binder mechanism to hold 8 1/2" by 11" inch paper. One sleeve contains an inner pocket, the other sleeve a small pocket and a packet for photo inserts. As you requested, the sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the 3 ring binder will be 3926.10.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics...office or school supplies. The rate of duty will be 5.3 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 Joan Mazzola at 212-466-5580.
