RE: The tariff classification of polyester woven vertical blind material, and polyester stitch-bonded vertical blind material coated with rayon flocking, from China or Taiwan

Dear Ms. Liang:

In your letter dated September 22, 1995 you requested a classification ruling.

You have submitted two samples of 3«-inch wide vertical blind material. Sample A is of polyester woven fabric and is said to have an acrylic fire retardant treatment. It is not visibly coated, although there is a coating material which prevents the edges of this material from unravelling. Sample B is a polyester stitch-bonded material, uniformly coated on one side with a rayon flocking.

The applicable subheading for Sample A will be 5806.32.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for narrow woven fabrics, other than goods of heading 5807; other woven fabrics; of man-made fibers; other. The duty rate will be 6.9 percent ad valorem. The applicable subheading for Sample B will be 5907.00.6000 HTS, which provides for textile fabrics otherwise impregnated, coated or covered; other; of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 5.2 percent ad valorem.

Both materials fall within textile category designation 229. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China or 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 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 Jeff Konzet at 212-466-5885.
