In your letter dated February 1st, 2001, you requested a ruling on tariff classification.

The items are imported packed for retail and are considered a set. The tote bag imparts the essential character of the set. The tote bag is unlined and consists of a single compartment with no additional features. The pouch consists of a single compartment that is secured by a zippered closure. The pouch does not have a carry handle or strap; the tote bag has two carry straps.

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

You have asked whether this product is subject to antidumping duties or countervailing duties. A list of AD/CVD proceedings at the Department of Commerce (DOC) and their product coverage can be obtained from the DOC website at: http://ia.ita.doc.gov. Written decisions regarding the scope of AD/CVD orders are issued by the Import Administration in the Department of Commerce and are separate from tariff classification and origin rulings issued by Customs.
