RE: The tariff classification of a tote bag from China.

Dear Ms. Venkateswaran:

In your letter dated November 16th, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your request is identified as style #7601328, "Striptease Satchel". The item is a tote bag that measures approximately 11 1/2" x 12 1/4 x 5 3/4". The interior is unlined and consists of a single compartment with no additional features. The exterior surface is comprised of a bag body of clear sheeting of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). Strips of polyester fabric are sewn onto the body of PVC. The PVC imparts the essential character of the bag as more of the surface area of the bag is PVC than polyester fabric. Two carry handles are permanently attached to the bag.

The applicable subheading for #7601328 will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports, and similar bags, other. The rate of duty will be 20% ad valorem.

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.
