RE: The tariff classification of dust cloths from Turkey.

Dear Mr. Stack:

In your letter dated December 6, 1989, on behalf of Fab-Tech, Inc., Baltimore, Maryland, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The samples submitted are two dust cloths composed of 100 percent woven cotton flannel fabric and measure approximately 26 1/8" x 18" and 18" x 17 3/4" with stitching around the edges. The samples will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the dust cloths will be 6307.10.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles, including dress patterns: Floorcloths, dishcloths, dusters and similar cleaning cloths: Dustcloths, mop cloths and polishing cloths, of cotton. The rate of duty will be 4.7 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty will remain the same during 1990.

The dust cloths fall within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements, the dust cloths which are products of Turkey are not subject to a quota and visa requirement.

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.
