RE: The tariff classification of 100% textured filament woven fabric from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Feng:

In your letter dated September 5, 1995 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated as style 300U, is a dyed plain woven fabric composed of 100% textured filament polyester. It contains 21.3 single yarns per centimeter in the warp and 20.1 single yarns per centimeter in the filling. Weighing 168 g/m2, the fabric will be imported in 150 centimeter widths.

The applicable subheading for the plain woven polyester fabric will be 5407.52.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of synthetic filament yarn, including woven fabrics obtained from the materials of heading 5404, other woven fabrics, containing 85 percent or more by weight of textured polyester filaments, dyed, other, weighing not more than 170 g/m2, flat fabrics. The duty rate will be 16.8 percent ad valorem.

This fabric falls within textile category designation 619. 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. 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 the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Alan Tytelman at 212-466-5896.
