RE: The tariff classification of a wrist purse and jacks set from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Gall:

In your letter dated November 14, 1991, on behalf of Strombecker Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a blister package containing a wrist purse constructed of textile man-made materials, a ball of hard rubber and eight jumbo plastic jacks. Although the items are blister packaged and will be sold at retail sale as a set, however, for classification purposes the wrist purse will be classified separately from the ball and jacks.

The applicable subheading for the wrist purse of textile man-made materials will be 4202.32.9550, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the ball and jacks will be 9504.90.9080, HTS, which provides for articles for arcade, table or parlor games, other. The duty rate will be 4.64 percent ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.32.9550 fall within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Taiwan are subject to visa requirement 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.
