RE: The tariff classification of a handbag from China

Dear Ms. Kwok:

In your letter dated July 24th, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a handbag from China.

The sample submitted with your request is identified as style # C-43064-3. The item is a ladies' handbag constructed of an exterior surface of plastic sheeting. The interior of the bag is lined and contains a single central compartment with a zippered back wall pocket. The top opening of the bag is secured by a center snap closure, which is concealed by a front flap that covers the entire front of the bag. An adjustable, permanently attached shoulder strap is sewn into the top of the bag. The bag measures approximately 12" in height by 14" in length.

The applicable subheading for style C-43064-3 will be 4202.22.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for handbags, whether or not with shoulder strap¬with outer surface of sheeting of plastic. The rate of duty will be 18% 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 Kevin Gorman at 212-637-7091.
