RE: The tariff classification of a plastic insert pan for cosmetics from France.

Dear Ms. Johannesen:

A removable clear plastic cover will be attached to keep the makeup fresh during shipment to the retail store. The sample tray will be discarded after use.

As you requested, the sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for the plastic insert pan will be 3923.90.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for articles for the conveyance or packing of goods, of plasticsotherother. The rate of duty will be 3 percent ad valorem.
