RE: The tariff classification of a disc carrying case from China
Dear Ms. Ruskamp:
In your letter dated March 10, 1992, on behalf of Case
Logic, you requested a tariff classification ruling on a
disc carrying case.
The submitted sample, item DK-10, described as a "Computer
Disc Organizer", is a disc carrying case constructed of nylon
textile material design to store and/or transport computer discs.
The interior is specially designed with pockets to contain ten
computer discs. It measure approximately 10" x 5 1/4" x 1 1/2".
It is secured by means of a textile zipper closure around the
entire circumference of the case. The front of the case features
the "Case Logic" logo.
Your sample is being returned as you requested.
The applicable subheading for item DK-10, the disc carrying
case of nylon textile material, will be 4202.92.9020, Harmonized
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for
trunks, suitcases, camera cases, and similar containers, with
outer surface of textile materials, other, other, other, of man-
made fibers. The duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.
Items classifiable under 4202.92.9020 fall within textile
category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade
agreements, products of China and Korea are subject to visa
requirements and quota restraints.
The designated textile and apparel category may be
subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements
applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since
part categories are the result of international bilateral
agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and
changes, we suggest that you check, close to the time of
shipment, the Status Report On Current Import Quotas (Restraint
Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which
is available for inspection at your local Customs office.
This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section
177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry
documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the
documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be
brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the
