Dear Ms Roberson:

In your letter dated July 31, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a badge holder.

The sample submitted is identified as Model #CDY-1. The item is a badge holder for use as a means of identification. It is manufactured with an exterior surface of man-made fiber textile material with a clear plastic window on the front panel. It measures approximately 5 ½”(W) x 6 ½”(H) with an adjustable braided strap, which allows the user to hang the holder from the neck. The holder features a front pocket for the ID, a rear pocket to hold a pad and other stationery items and a pen holder. The rear pocket has a hook and loop fastener to secure the items within. Your sample is being returned as requested.
