RE: The tariff classification of jewelry pouches and a jewelry roll from China.

Dear Mr. Marshall:

In your undated letter, received in this office June 12, 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling on jewelry pouches and a jewelry roll.

You have submitted three samples with your request. They are as follows:

Items 07105/1-5 and A130 are rayon satin brocade snap pouches designed to contain jewelry. Item 07105/1-5 measures approximately 3 1/2" x 3" and item A130 measures approximately 4" x 5". Both pouches are the type designed to be carried in the handbag. They are secured by means of textile zipper closures, in addition to a flap with a metal snap closure. Item AA05 is a small jewelry roll constructed of rayon satin brocade designed to contain jewelry while traveling. The interior is designed with zippered storage pockets on each side and there is a snap jewelry roll in the center designed to contain rings. The roll measures approximately 5" x 3" in its folded position. It is secured by means of a textile tie-string closure.

The applicable subheading for Items 07105/1-5 and A130, the snap jewelry pouches of rayon satin brocade, 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, other, of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for Item AA05, the travel jewelry roll of rayon satin brocade, will be 4202.92.3030, HTS, which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man-made fibers, other. The duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.32.9550 and 4202.92.3030 fall within textile category designation 670. 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.
