RE: The tariff classification of leather cell phone cases from China

Dear Ms. Chesson:

In your letter dated May 15th, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling. The request is on behalf of Wireless Concepts.

The sample submitted, identified as Style number LP5100, is a cellular telephone case measuring approximately 2 ½”W x 5”H x 7/8”D. It is constructed primarily of leather, with a belt clip and a woven nylon wrist strap on the back. The case closes with a Velcro –backed flap. The front of the case features a 1 ¾”W x 3 ½”H plastic “window”.

The applicable subheading for the cell phone cases will be 4202.91.0090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, camera cases, traveling bags and similar containers, other, with outer surface of leather, of composition leather or of leather, other. The rate of duty will be 4.5 per cent ad valorem.
