RE: The tariff classification of a pencil case from China

Dear Mr. Garcia:

In your letter dated September, 17, 2007, on behalf of Miquel-Rius USA Ltd., you requested a tariff classification ruling. You have submitted a sample for our review.

The case measures approximately 8 inches in length by 2 inches in width. It has a zipper closure and a flock lining. The colorfully painted exterior depicts a young woman holding shopping bags, and the printed words, “Jordi Labanda”.

The applicable subheading for the pencil case will be 7326.90.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other articles of iron or steel, other, of tinplate. The rate of duty will be free.
