RE: The tariff classification of a paperboard trinket box from China.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated June 6, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample identified as a “3 Drawer Paper Jewelry Box” (Item #997337) was submitted and will be retained for reference. The item, which is a cube-like box measuring approximately 4¾” x 4¾” x 5”(H), is constructed of rigid paperboard. It is covered on the exterior with design-printed, plastic-coated paper. It features three drawers, each having a plain, unstructured interior (i.e., without any dividers, fittings or the like), suitable for the storage of trinkets or miscellaneous small items in the household.

The applicable subheading for the #997337 box will be 4823.90.6500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other (non-enumerated) articles of coated paper or paperboard. The rate of duty will be 1.7%.

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 Carl Abramowitz at 212-637-7060.
