RE: The tariff classification of a decorative trimming from China.

Dear Mr. Chang:

In your letter dated May 11, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, consists of a decorative trimming composed of 100 polyester man-made fibers. It measures about 5/8" in width, appears to be a pleated or folded type construction and is designed to be sewn onto such things as pillows and curtains for the purpose of embellishment. Your letter states that this trimming will be imported in running yards.

The applicable subheading for the trimming will be 5808.90.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for ornamental trimmings in the piece, of cotton; of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 7.8 percent ad valorem.

This merchandise falls within textile category designation 229. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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.
