RE: The tariff classification of a bottle bag from China

Dear Ms. Gibson:

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

The submitted sample, style #602183, is a bottle bag composed of 100% nylon woven taffeta, exclusive of trim. This bag measures approximately 12 high x 7 wide and features a gold embroidered message on the front of the bag that reads "Celebrate". This bag has a twisted rope used as a drawstring to tie the bag shut at the top. Your sample will be returned to you as requested.

The applicable subheading for the bottle bag of 100% nylon woven taffeta will be 4202.92.9026, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for trunks, suitcases, holsters and similar containers with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, other of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 19% ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.9026, 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.
