RE: The tariff classification of a drawstring toiletry bag from China.

Dear Ms. Gibson:

In your letter dated January 27, 1998, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Black Drawstring Bag - style #601983, is a drawstring toiletry bag measuring 6« wide by 12 high. The outside of this bag is composed of 100% polyester woven fabric and the inner lining is made of 100% PVC. There is a piece of black ribbon attached at the back side of the top of the bag that is used to tie the bag shut. You refer to two other styles, no samples submitted, Gold Drawstring Bag - style #601982 and Pink Drawstring Bag - style #601971. Your sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the Black Drawstring Bag - style #601983, 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% 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.
