RE: The tariff classification of five fusible interlining fabrics, from Korea.

Dear Mr. Choi:

In your letter dated December 1, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The manufacturer is Ilshin Inc. Co., Inc., Pusan, Korea.

Five representative samples were submitted and identified as follows: 1) IS-3014M, 2) IS-2040MS, 3) IS-928M, 4) IS-559 and 5) IS-3020Y. All five samples are of woven or knit construction and consist of fusible interlining fabrics composed of man-made fibers: polyester, nylon, polyethylene man-made fibers and acrylic, etc. All of the fabrics are light in color (white or beige, etc.) and contain a light coating of thermoplastic resin dots which are visible to the naked eye.

The applicable subheading for the five materials will be 5903.90.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for textile fabrics impregnated, coated, covered or laminated with plastics, of man-made fibers, not over 70 percent by weight of plastic. The rate of duty will be 8.5 percent ad valorem.

This merchandise falls within textile category designation 229. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Korea are subject to the requirement of a visa.

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.

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.
