RE: The tariff classification of the, Fun Pack style # 4710, from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Webster:

In your letter dated May 15, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective import, the Fun Pack style # 4710, consists of a satin bow ponytail holder, a pair of polyester shoe laces, and a bubble necklace. These items are packed inside a child's vinyl handbag measuring 6 3/4 " long by 5" wide.

The Fun Pack, style # 4710, will be classified as follows:

Descriptions Classification HTS Rate of Duty

1. Ponytail holder Other combs, hair- 9615. 11 per cent slides and the like: 19.6010 ad valorem of textile materials.

2. Polyester shoe Other made up articles 6307.90. 7.9 per cent laces ...other corset lacings 5020 ad valorem footwear lacings or similar lacings other.

3. Bubble necklace Imitation jewelry: 7117.90 11 per cent other: other: valued 5000 ad valorem over 20 cents per dozen pieces or parts.

4. Child's handbag Handbags..with outer 4202.22. 20 per cent surface of plastic 1500 ad valorem sheeting

The shoe laces are classified as above. However, for quota purposes the shoe laces are reported separately under HTS 6307.90.5020. HTS 6307.90.5020 falls within textile category designation 669. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Taiwan are subject to quota and visa requirements.

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 the most current 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.

Each Fun Pack should be marked as clearly, legibly and indelibly as possible with the proper country of origin.

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.
