RE: The tariff classification of two receiving blankets and an infant comfy cuddle from Taiwan, Korea, and Singapore.

Dear Ms. Rampy:

In your letter dated January 7, 1994, on behalf of Diplomat Corporation you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted two receiving blankets style number L 1601 and an infant comfy cuddle style number 1605/L605. The receiving blankets are made of 100 percent cotton woven flannel material and they measure 29 inches by 39 inches. The edges on both blankets have an overcast stitch. One is printed with a heart design in blue, yellow, and pink. The other one is printed in a geometric design in the primary colors.

The pink comfy cuddle is made of 100 percent cotton knit material. It is a blanket material which has been sewn to resemble an infants bunting. There is an opening in the center and a wrap around VELCRO like closure. The samples are being returned.

The applicable subheading for the receiving blankets will be 6301.30.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for blankets and traveling rugs: blankets (other than electric blankets) and traveling rugs, of cotton... woven. The rate of duty will be 9.5 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the comfy cuddle will be 6307.90.9986, HTS, which provides other made up articles, including dress patterns: other : other: other: other. The rate of duty is 7 percent ad valorem.

The receiving blankets fall within textile category designation 369. Based upon international trade agreements, products of Taiwan, Korea, and Singapore are subject to quota and visa requirements.

The designated textile and apparel categories 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.
