RE: The tariff classification of a carry bag from Mexico.

Dear Mr. Dominguez:

In your undated letter, received in this office March 3, 1993, on behalf of Exportadora Cabrerra, S.A. de C.V., of Jalisco Mexico, you requested a tariff classification ruling on a carry bag.

The sample submitted, no style number indicated, is a general purpose carry bag constructed of cotton canvas woven fabric. The bag features tough harness leather handles and closure straps. The top of the bag has a steel hinged frame for a tight closure. It is unlined and measures approximately 20" x 14" x 4".

The applicable subheading for the general purpose carry bag of cotton canvas woven fabric, will be 4202.92.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, of vegetable fibers and not of pile or tufted construction. The duty rate will be 7.2 percent ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.1500 fall within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Mexico are subject to 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, 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.
