RE: The tariff classification of a shoulder bag from China

Dear Ms. Balice:

In your letter dated November 9, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling. A sample was submitted for our examination.

The submitted sample, style #75733, is a shoulder bag with an outer surface of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The bag measures approximately 10 x 9 x 3 inches with a zippered front compartment, an unsecured back compartment and a single textile shoulder strap. The front compartment has various slots to accommodate the insertion of credit cards. The bag has a secured flap top closure. Your sample is herein returned.

The applicable subheading for the shoulder bag, style #75733, will be 4202.22.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: Handbags: Whether or not with shoulder straps, including those without handles: With outer surface of sheeting of plastic. The rate of duty will be 18.4% 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.
