RE: The tariff classification of bridal headpieces and veils from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Micklis:

In your letter doted March 16, 1993, on behalf of Marabella Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Three samples were submitted with your request. Style 9331 is a headpiece made of a semi-rigid plastic band covered with textile material. Imitation pearls and beads made of plastic material are sewn onto the fabric and crown of the headpiece to form an intricate design. On either side of the band is a comb to facilitate holding the headpiece in place. The headpiece can be worn with or without a veil. Style 8010 consists of textile artificial flower spray with imitation pearls and a 100 percent polyester veil attached. Style 9321 consists of imitation pearls and crystals made of plastic material with a 100 percent polyester veil attached to the headpiece.

The applicable subheading for styles 9331 and will be 3926.20.5050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics and articles of other materials of headings 3901 to 3914; Articles of apparel and clothing accessories (including gloves): Other: Other, other. The rate of duty will be 5 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for styles 8010 and 9321 will be 6117.10.2030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up clothing accessories, knitted or crocheted: knitted or crocheted parts of garments or of clothing accessories: Shawls, scarves, mufflers, mantillas, veils and the like: Of man-made fibers, other. The rate of duty will be 12 percent ad valorem.

Styles 8010 and 9321 falls within textile category designation 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to visa requirements and an export license is required.

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 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 he 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.
