RE: The tariff classification of filament nylon woven fabric from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Williams:

In your letter dated September 17, 1997, on behalf of your client Creative Marketing Concepts, Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a plain woven fabric composed primarily of nylon monofilament with a small amount of metalized yarn used as a decorative border along the edges of the fabric. It contains approximately 37 single yarns per centimeter in the warp and 34 single yarns per centimeter in the filling. It is constructed using 30 denier yarns in both the warp and the filling. The fabric is manufactured using yarns of different colors and has been printed with a star motif. Weighing 30 g/m2, this product will be imported in 30.6 centimeter widths. A metal wire has been sewn into the edges of the fabric.

The applicable subheading for the woven fabric will be 5407.44.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of synthetic filament yarn, including woven fabrics obtained from the materials of heading 5404, other woven fabrics containing 85 percent or more by weight of filaments of nylon or other polyamides, printed, weighing not more than 170 g/m2. The duty rate will be 15.5 percent ad valorem.

This fabric falls within textile category designation 620. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Taiwan 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 Alan Tytelman at 212-466-5896.
