RE: The tariff classification of a vinyl packing bag from China.

In your letter dated May 11, 2006, on behalf of the Frenz Group, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample was provided with your letter. Item #KC0136 is a clear polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pouch or bag that will be used for packaging. The pouch is approximately 8.5 inches by 5 inches with 1-inch gussets on the side and bottom. The pouch has an open top with a cutout window on each side. There is no means to close the bag. The seams are heat-sealed.

The applicable subheading for the PVC pouch will be 3923.29.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for articles for the conveyance or packing of goods, of plastics: sacks and bags (including cones): of other plastics. The rate of duty will be 3 percent ad valorem.
