RE: The tariff classification of a drawstring travel pouch from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Hussey:

In your letter dated April 12, 1994, on behalf of Saks Fifth Ave., you requested a tariff classification ruling for a drawstring travel pouch.

The sample submitted, no style number indicated, is a drawstring travel pouch composed of textile man-made woven fabric designed to contain personal effects. The pouch is lined with textile material and measures approximately 4 inches by 6 inches by 3 1/2 inches. The item is gold in color with a metallic-look finish. The top is secured by means of a twisted drawstring closure.

The applicable subheading for the drawstring travel pouch of textile man-made fabric will be 4202.92.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (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 4202.92.3030 fall within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong 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.
