RE: The tariff classification of children's mitten clips from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Henneman:

In your letter dated April 21, 1995 you requested a classification ruling. A sample was submitted for examination and will be returned as requested.

The submitted sample consists of a pair of mitten clips made up of elasticized woven polyester fabric strips approximately 2 inches long by 3/4 inches in width. At each end of the of the strip is painted metal locking clip used to clamp the clip to the mittens. At the middle of each strip is a POOH head made up of painted plastic.

The applicable subheading for the mitten clips will be 6217.10.9030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other made up clothing accessories; parts of garments or of clothing accessories, other than those of heading 6212: Accessories: Other....Of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 15.4 percent ad valorem.

The mitten clips falls within textile category designation 659. As a product of Taiwan this merchandise may be subject to visa requirements and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements.

The designated textile and apparel category 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 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.
