It is printed on one side with the importer’s logo and is printed with an ink stripe at the top of the bag to denote the open side. The bag will be used as packaging for a small carburetor.

The applicable subheading for the polyethylene packaging bag will be 3923.21.0095, 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 polymers of ethyleneother. The rate of duty will be 3 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
