RE: The tariff classification of a shoulder bag from Estonia

Dear Ms. Ballenger:

In your letter dated September 24, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a shoulder bag.

The sample submitted is not identified by style number. The item is a shoulder bag designed to contain the small personal effects normally carried by a lady on a daily basis. It is manufactured with an exterior surface of leather. The interior is textile lined and features a divided center compartment with zipper closure and open compartment on either side. The bag measures approximately 6 ¾”(W) x 4 ¾”(H) with 2 ½”gussets. It is secured by means of a flap with a leather peg-like fastener inserted through two loops. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the handbag will be 4202.21.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for handbags, whether or not with shoulder strap, including those without handle, with outer surface of leather, of composition leather or of patent leather, other, valued over $20 each. The rate of duty will be 9 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 Kevin Gorman at 646-733-3041.
