RE: The tariff classification of a ladies travel bag from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Pontieri:

In your letter dated July 25, 1990, on behalf of NAS Import Corp., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style #80786, is a ladies travel bag with outer surface constructed essentially of tapestry man-made textile materials with PVC trim. The bag measures approximately 18" x 11 1/2" x 4". It has double handle PVC shoulder straps and a zippered top with a magnetic snap flap closure. Your sample is being returned per your request.

The applicable subheading for style #80786, the ladies travel bag of man-made textile materials, will be 4202.92.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man-made fibers, other. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.

Item 4202.92.3030 falls within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to visa requirements.

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.
