RE: The tariff classification of childrens hat from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Saul:

In your letter dated April 4, 1995 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a girls' hat consisting of 100% polypropylene with 65% polyester and 35% cotton trim. You state that the hat will be imported in sizes 12 to 18 months and 2T to 4T. The hat fabric resembles a straw hat with textile trim on the brim and a textile rose on the front of the hat. The hat is constructed by assembling strips of polypropylene material which habe been sewn together.

The applicable subheading for the hat will be 6504.00.9015, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for hats and other headgear, plaited or made by assembling strips of any material, whether or not lined or trimmed: Other, Sewed: Of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 7.2 percent ad valorem.

The hat falls within the textile category designation 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Taiwan are subject to quota restraints and visa requirements.

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 agrements which ate 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 (Retraint 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 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.
