RE: The tariff classification of a binder from China or Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Luna-Ogg:

In your letter dated July 27, 1999, on behalf of Horizon Designs, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample is being returned as requested.

The sample submitted is a binder. The outer shell is made of neoprene rubber covered on both sides with knit fabric. The inside is lined with a cardboard sheet covered with woven fabric. A web fabric binding material is sewn around the edges of the liner. The liner is glued to the outer shell. In its open position, the left side contains a zippered open work knit pocket. At the top is a plastic snap hook. The right side contains a vertical open pocket with an open horizontal pocket. The middle features three metal rings attached to a metal base. It is secured by means of a zipper closure on three sides.

The applicable subheading for the binder will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent 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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Alan Tytelman at 212-637-7092.
