RE: The tariff classification of a wool travel bag from China.

Dear Ms. Gibson:

In your letter dated March 14, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You have submitted one sample bag. The sample, described as a "Wool Backpack", is a travel bag with an outer surface said to be of 65 % wool and 35 % viscose textile material. The bag is similar in appearance to a rucksack. The "Wool Backpack" has a magnetic snap closure and a single shoulder strap. Approximate dimensions for the bag are 9x10.5 inches (height and width, respectively).

The applicable subheading for the bag will be 4202.92.3090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 19.3 percent ad valorem.

The bag falls within textile category designation 870. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China 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.


"Signed by"
