RE: The tariff classification of a travel bag from China.

Dear Ms. Kwok:

In your letter dated June 14, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a travel bag.

The sample submitted is identified as item C-72069E. The item is a travel bag designed to contain toiletries and related articles during travel. It is manufactured with an exterior surface of 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The interior is vinyl lined and features clear vinyl divided loops on each wall to contain lotions and other toilet preparations. The interior lid features a full-width zippered compartment for other small personal effects. The bag measures approximately 8”(W) x 4 ½”(H) x 8“(D).

The applicable subheading for the travel bag will be 4202.92.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, of vegetable fibers and not of pile or tufted construction, of cotton. The rate of duty will be 6.5 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, or you may write to them at the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, Office of Antidumping Compliance, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, N.W. Washington, DC 20230. 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.

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 Kevin Gorman at 646-733-3041.
