RE: The tariff classification of a belt from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Zupito:

In your letter dated November 12, 1998, on behalf of Sportsmans, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a wearing apparel belt consisting of 100% woven nylon fabric with a metal closure. The belt is intended to be used when playing football.

The applicable subheading for the belt will be 6217.10.9530, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Other made up clothing accessories; parts of clothing accessories, other than those of heading 6212: Accessories: Other: Other, Of man-made fiber. The duty rate will be 15.1% ad valorem.

The belt falls within textile category designation 659. 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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 212-466-5881.
