RE: The tariff classification of a DVD discs case from China.

Dear Mr. Wackerman:

In your letter dated June 10, 2002, on behalf of Southwood Industries, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a DVD discs case.

A sample has not been submitted, however photographs of the case in open and closed position are part of the request

Based on photographs, the item is a DVD discs case made up of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) sheeting and aluminum trim. The case has a pullman grip and bottom feet. The interior appears to be fitted to contain DVD discs. The carrying case is made up to provide storage, protection organization and portability to the discs. It appears that it may also be used as a display case. It is similar to a CD-ROM carry case.

The applicable subheading for the DVD discs case will be 4202.92.9050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other, cases designed to protect and transport compact disks (CD’s), CD ROM disks, CD players, cassette players and/or cassettes, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic or of textile materials, other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 18.1 percent ad valorem.

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 Levin Gorman at 646-733-3041.
