In your letter dated January 3, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

It is manufactured of transparent polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sheeting with a three starfish graphic design on the front exterior and the “American Girl logo underneath. The interior is unlined with no additional features. It measures approximately 14”(W) x 13”(H). It is secured by means of a top drawstring closure, in addition to a flap with a hook and loop fastener. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the backpack will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.
