RE: The tariff classification of two imitation leather fabrics, from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Feng:

In your letter dated April 27, 1993 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Two representative samples were submitted. The first item, style 1305 PAPUA, consists of a woven 65%cotton/35%polyester blend fabric that has been laminated on one side with a 1.1mm PVC plastics material. The textile portion has been brushed and the PVC portion has been embossed with a smooth texture. The second item, style 1306 FRUNZE, is of similar construction to the first item, except that the PVC has been embossed with a rough texture. The following technical specifications were provided and are applicable to both fabrics:

PVC 520g/sq.mtr.(76.47%)
Backing 160g/sq.mtr.(23.53%)

The applicable subheading for the two fabrics will be 5903.10.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for textile fabrics impregnated, coated, covered or laminated with plastics, with polyvinyl chloride, of cotton. The rate of duty will be 5.3 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.
