RE: The tariff classification of a PVC lunch bag from China

Dear Mr. Rider:

In your letter dated June 10, 1999 you requested the tariff classification for Amelias Lunch Bag style no. LSLB-01.

No. LSLB-01 is a rectangularly shaped lunch bag with outer surface of printed PVC sheeting. It measures approximately 5" x 4 1/2" x 8 3/4". The bag features an undivided interior compartment and hinged top lid with zip-around closure. Paperboard inserts in both the lid and bottom add support and help the bag hold its shape. The bag may be carried by means of either a nylon webbing carry handle or a detachable nylon webbing shoulder strap. When not in use the shoulder strap stores away in a mesh pocket sewn into the underside of the lid.

The applicable subheading for style LSLB-01 will be 4202.92.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, ...bottle cases,...and similar containers, other, with surface of sheeting of plastic, other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 18.8 percent ad valorem.
