RE: The tariff classification of a wallet, a pen case, and card case from China

Dear Ms. Naueau:

In your letter dated November 3, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The three submitted samples are constructed with an outer surface of plastic sheeting that is backed with textile material. The wallet measures approximately 7” (W) x 4.5” (H) when closed. It features five credit card slots, a zippered compartment for coins, and a compartment for paper currency. The pen case measures approximately 2” (W) x 6” (H) and features compartments for two pens. The card case measures approximately 5.5” (W) x 4” (H) when closed and features four interior plastic sleeves.

The applicable subheading for the wallet, pen case, and card case will be 4202.32.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of sheeting of plastic, of reinforced or laminated plastics. The rate of duty will be 12.1 cents/kg plus 4.6 percent ad valorem.

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