RE: The tariff classification of a diaper bag from China

Dear Ms. Knippling:

In your letter dated March 26, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client Century Products Company, 9600 Valley View Road, Macedonia, OH 44056.

The sample submitted for our review is a diaper bag of man-made materials. The bag measures approximately 11 inches in width x 12 inches x 5 1/2 inches. The outer fabric is a 60/40 polycotton blend. A lined elastic pocket and snap are on each side of the bag. The bag has a velcro closure at the top. In addition, there are two textile straps for carrying. The interior is lined in vinyl with two elastic bands sewn inside for securing items.

As requested, your sample will be returned to the address.

The applicable subheading for the diaper bag will be 4202.92.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with an outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man-made fibers, other. The rate of duty will be 19 percent ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.3030 fall within textile category designation 670. 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.
