RE: The tariff classification of novelty tote bags from Thailand.

Dear Mr. Riggle:

In your letter dated June 29, 1990, on behalf of Imagination Factory, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted two samples of novelty tote bags which are representative of a range of similar tote bags. The various tote bags will be designed to simulate animals and or other objects. You have submitted an item described as a "Reindeer Dooffles" and a "Booffles. Both items are essentially open top tote bags designed for a child to carry personal effects. Each bag is manufactured of man-made textile materials.

Your samples are being returned per your request.

The applicable subheading for the novelty tote bags of man- made textile materials will be 4202.92.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man-made fibers, other. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.

Item 4202.92.3030 falls within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Thailand are subject to 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, to obtain information available, 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 transaction.
