RE: The tariff classification of a laminated fabric, from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Feng:

In your letter dated July 9, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The instant samples, identified as style 900PVC (a gray and purple sample were submitted), consist of 100% woven polyester filament fabrics which are laminated on one side with a compact polyvinyl chloride plastics material. This PVC portion has been embossed to simulate a woven effect. You indicate that the construction of this material is 300Dx300D/70T 36x34 with the PVC measuring 0.20mm. While you did not indicate the end use of these fabrics, the following information concerning the weights was provided:

Polyester: 229.56g/m2 (27.4% of total weight) PVC: 609.22g/m2 (72.6% of total weight)

Total: 838.78g/m2

The applicable subheading for this material will be 5903.10.2090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for textile fabrics impregnated, coated, covered or laminated with plastics, with polyvinyl chloride, of man-made fibers, over 70 percent by weight of rubber or plastics. The rate of duty will be 4.2 percent ad valorem.

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.
