RE: The tariff classification of a cosmetic bag with accessories from China.

Dear Ms. Webster:

In your letter dated May 9, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style #6257, is a clear plastic travel cosmetic bag with accessories consisting of an eyeglass case, a smoke tote, a coin purse and a lipstick case, all constructed with an outer surface of 100% cotton textile materials with PVC linings.

The applicable subheading for style #6257, the travel cosmetic bag of plastic, will be 4202.92.4500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of plastic sheeting, other. The duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for style #6257, the eyeglass case, smoke tote, coin purse, and lipstick case of 100% cotton textile materials, will be 4202.32.4000, HTS, which provides for articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of textile materials, of vegetable fibers and not of pile or tufted construction, of cotton. The duty rate will be 7.2 percent ad valorem.

Items 4202.32.4000 falls within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China 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 transaction.
