RE: The tariff classification of a cell phone carrying case from China.

Dear Mr. Parsons:

In your letter dated August 18th, 2000, you requested a classification ruling.

The front exterior of the case is comprised of textile material of man-made fiber. The rear and side panels are comprised of a sheeting of plastic. The sheeting of plastic imparts the essential character. A front flap with a hook and loop closure secures the top opening of the case.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

Your sample is being returned as requested.

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.
