RE: The tariff classification of a Glucose Meter Case from China.

Dear Mr. Findley:

In your letter, received at Customs February 5, 1999 your equested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Nova Biomedical, Waltham, MA.

The sample submitted with your request, part #20029, is a specially fitted softsided case for a glucose meter. The case is a bifold approximately 6" x 5" when open. The interior has a divided mesh pocket with zipper closure. The exterior has a pocket with flap and Velcro closure on one side and belt loop on the other. The outer surface is a textile fabric of nylon.

The applicable subheading for part #20029 will be 4202.92.9026, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks...holsters and similar containers, other, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man made fibers. The rate of duty will be 18.8 percent ad valorem.

Items classified under HTS 4202.92.9026 fall within textile category designation 670 . Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China in category 670 are subject to visa and quota requirements.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, to obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report On Current Import Quotas (Restraints Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177of 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.
