RE: The tariff classification of a small tote bag from China.

Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated November 16, 1995, you requested a classification ruling for a small tote bag.

You have submitted a sample of a small double handle, open top, tote bag composed of a pile or tufted, man-made textile material. What gives the bag its distinstive feature is its tinsel-like yarn. It measures approximately 6 1/2" x 5" with 3" gussets.

The applicable subheading for the tote bag of man-made textile material 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 19.8 percent ad valorem.

Your inquiry does not provide enough information for us to give a classification ruling on the other items in your request. Your request for a classification ruling should include: not more than five like items per request, actual samples as being imported, country of origin of each and a component breakdown by weight of each.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.3030 fall within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China 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 Kevin Gorman at 212-466-5893.
