RE: The tariff classification of a bag from Mexico.

Dear Mr. Noell:

In your letter dated September 19, 1995, on behalf of Kenneth Fox Supply Co., McAllen, Texas, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a bag made of leno woven polypropylene strips and measures approximately 32" x 18 1/2". The construction of the fabric is textile strips that are less than 5 millimeters in width. The Strips meet the dimensional requirements for man-made fiber strips contained in Section XI, Legal Note 1 (g) of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS). The bag will be used to package fresh produce.

The applicable subheading for the bag will be 6305.31.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sacks and bags, of a kind used for the packing of goods: Of man-made textile materials: Of polyethylene or polypropylene strip or the like, other. The rate of duty will be 9.4 percent ad valorem.

Articles classified under subheading 6305.31.0020, HTS, fall within textile category designation 669. At the present time there are no visa or quota restrictions for articles classifiable under subheading 6305.31.0020, HTS, from Mexico. The result of international bilateral agreements 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 V. Gualario at 212-466-5886.
