RE: The tariff classification and status under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), of “Cash Register Bags” from Mexico; Article 509

Dear Mr. Henssge:

In your letter dated January 11, 1999, you requested a ruling on the status of “Cash Register Bags” from Mexico under the NAFTA.

The samples submitted, described as “Cash Register Bags”, are zippered bags generally shaped to fit a cash register drawer and are intended to transport and store the drawers. The bags are manufactured with an exterior surface of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic sheeting.

You have stated that the material and zippers are made in Mexico and that the material is converted into the final product in Mexico (including cutting and sewing).

The applicable tariff provision for the “Cash Register Bags” of plastic sheeting will be 4202.92.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides in part for other bags and containers, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic, other, other, other, other. The general rate of duty will be 18.8 percent ad valorem.

The bags, being made entirely in the territory of Mexico using materials which themselves were originating, will satisfy the requirements of HTSUSA General Note 12(b)(iii). The merchandise will therefore be entitled to a 8 percent rate of duty under the NAFTA upon compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and agreements.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 181 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 181).

This ruling letter is binding only as to the party to whom it is issued and may be relied on only by that party.

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 Kevin Gorman at 212-466-5893.
