RE: The tariff classification of a cosmetic purse from China.

Dear Ms. Kwok:

In your letter dated September 20, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a cosmetic purse.

The sample submitted is identified as item C-72028A. The item is a cosmetic purse manufactured with an exterior surface of 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The interior is textile lined with no additional features. The bag measures approximately 6 ½”(W) x 5”(H) x 1”(D). The top opening is secured by means of a flap with a metal snap fastener.

The applicable subheading for item C-72028A will be 4202.12.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, vanity cases and similar containers, 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.
