RE: The tariff classification of a golf towel from Taiwan and Indonesia.

Dear Mr. Eckstam:

In your letter dated September 19, 1996 you requested a classification ruling.

You submitted a black colored golf towel. This towel is intended to hang on a golf bag and will be used for wiping dirt, grass, moisture, etc. off a golf club after a shot or before the next shot. The front portion is made from 100 percent acrylic imitation fur fabric. The back is made from a 100 percent polyester brushed knit fabric. The edges are bound with knit fabric and the item measures approximately 10-1/2 by 17-1/2 inches. Attached to the top portion of the triangular shaped towel is a plastic clip used to hang the towel on a golf bag or golf cart.

The applicable subheading for the towel will be 6307.90.9984, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles, including dress patterns: other: other: other.... other: other towels of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 7 percent ad valorem.

The golf towel falls within textile category designation 666. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Taiwan or Indonesia are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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. 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 (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist John Hansen at 212-466-5854.
