RE: The tariff classification of acrylic woven fabric from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Lear:

In your letter dated February 16, 1995, on behalf of your client Kat-em International, Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as design number 82-1010, Positano. It is composed of 100% staple acrylic. This dobby woven fabric is constructed using 2/60 m.c. yarns in both the warp and filling. It is manufactured using yarns of different colors and weighs 207 g/m2. This textile product will be imported in widths ranging between 147 and 152 centimeters.

The applicable subheading for the woven fabric will be 5512.29.0005, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of synthetic staple fibers, containing 85 percent or more by weight of synthetic staple fibers, containing 85 percent or more by weight of acrylic or modacrylic staple fibers, other, of yarns of different colors, except blue denim or jacquard weave. The duty rate will be 15.3 percent ad valorem.

This woven fabric falls within textile category designation 218. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Taiwan are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories 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.
