RE: The tariff classification of CD storage cases from China.

Dear Ms. Dorfman:

In your letter dated December 15, 2003, on behalf of LTD Commodities LLC, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Two samples were provided with your letter. The “ROMdex-40” is a desktop plastic CD holder designed to hold 40 CD’s without jewel cases. The “ROMdex-80” is a desktop plastic CD holder designed to hold 80 CD’s without jewel cases. Although the CD holders have a handle, they are more suitable for storing CD’s than for transporting them, since the handle acts as a lever to open the case and makes the case much too likely to spring open and spill the contents during transport. As you requested, the samples will be returned.

The applicable subheading for the plastic CD holders will be 3926.10.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plasticsoffice or school supplies. The rate of duty will be 5.3 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 Joan Mazzola at 646-733-3023.
