RE: The tariff classification of a Shopping Bag from India

Dear Ms. Sperber:

In your letter dated August 4, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style No. 18081 is a shopping bag of 100 percent cotton with elastic and button closures. The bag measures approximately 17 inches in width x 15 inches in length with a 16-inch shoulder strap. There is a design on both the front and the back of the shopping bag.

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

The applicable subheading for the shopping bag will be 4202.92.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with an outer surface of textile materials, of vegetable fibers and not of pile or tufted construction. The rate of duty will be 6.8 percent ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.1500 fall within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of India 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.
