RE: The tariff classification of a backpack from China.

Dear Ms. Blundo:

In your letter dated June 11, 1997, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style #9713, is a 100% nylon backpack. This backpack features one compartment inside and a zippered pocket across the front. It closes with a top zipper and is carried by two straps. This backpack is meant to be worn on the back.

The applicable subheading for the backpack of 100% nylon material, style #9713, will be 4202.92.3020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man-made fibers, backpacks. The duty rate will be 19.3% ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.3020, HTSUSA, fall within textile category designation 670. As a product of China, this merchandise is subject to visa requirements and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements.

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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations.

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.
