RE: The tariff classification of a scarf from Pakistan.

Dear Mr. Liberati:

In your letter dated October 26, 1994, received in our office on November 16.1994, on behalf of Mohammed Zakaria Makada, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a scarf measuring approximately 27 1/2 by 29 1/2 inches and consisting of woven nylon fabric. As per telecon with Mr. M. Marco the scarf will also be imported in cotton fabric.

The applicable subheading for the woven nylon scarf will be 6214.30.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for shawls, scarves, mufflers, mantillas, veils and the like: Of synthetic fibers. The duty rate will be 10.6 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the cotton scarf will be 6214.90.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for shawls, scarfs,...and the like: Of other textile materials, of cotton. The duty rate will be 12 percent ad valorem.

The nylon and cotton scarfs fall within textile category designation 659 and 359 respectively. Based upon the international textile trade agreements products of Pakistan are subject to quota restraints and visa requirements.

Due to the changeable nature of these agreements you are advised to contact your local Customs office prior to importation of this merchandise to determine the current status of any import restraints or requirements. 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.
