RE: The tariff classification of a Camera Case from China

Dear Mr. Montoya:

In your letter dated June 29, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted for our review is a Camera Case K104- Item Code C49-2101. The camera case is composed of man-made textile materials. The case measures approximately 4 inches in length x 5 inches in width with a single main compartment. A zipper encloses the case for protection of the camera.

As requested, your sample will be returned to the above address.

The applicable subheading for the Camera Case K104 - Item Code C49-2101, will be 4202.92.9026, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, vanity cases, attache cases, briefcases and similar containers, with outer surface of textile materials. The rate of duty will be 18.8 percent ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.9026 fall within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. 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 (Restraint 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 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.
