RE: The tariff classification of a duffle bag from China.

Dear Mr. Rickert:

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

The submitted sample, no style number indicated, is a 100% nylon duffle bag measuring approximately 15«" X 11«" X 25«" when expanded. This duffle bag features a front outside zippered pocket, a zippered compartment on the back, nylon zippers across the top, two sturdy webbed handles and a removeable shoulder strap which attaches to reinforced D-rings. Your sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the duffle bag will be 4202.92.3030, 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, other. The duty rate will be 19.3% ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.3030, HTSUSA, fall within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

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.
