RE: The tariff classification of ballet bag from China

Dear Ms. Stanczak:

In your letter dated February 9, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample will be returned as requested.

The sample submitted is identified as “Ballet Box,” style B22C. The item is a travel bag that is box-shaped and manufactured with an outer surface of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic sheeting. It is designed to provide storage, protection and organization for clothing, shoes, and other ballet accessories during travel. It measures approximately 9.5” (H) X 9.5” (W) X 3.5” (D). The bottom portion of the bag features a separate compartment for a pair of ballet shoes. The bag has an adjustable shoulder strap. The top of the bag secures by means of a hook and loop closure.

The applicable subheading for the travel bag will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for travel, sport, and similar bags, with outer surface of a sheeting of plastics. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.
