RE: The tariff classification of a COSMETIC BAG from CHINA.

Dear Mr Kang:

In your letter dated April 28, 1998 you requested a tariff
classification ruling on behalf of T A Creations, Los Angeles,


The sample submitted with your request, style 80427, is a
cosmetic bag, approximately 8.5" x 6" x 1" in size. The bag
features a divided textile (nylon) lined interior, with zippered
pocket in flap and a velcro closure. The outer surface is 100

The applicable subheading for style 80427 will be

outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man made
fibers, other. The rate of duty will be 19 percent ad valorem.

Style 80427 falls within textile category designation 670.

Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of

China in category 670 are subject to visa and quota requirements.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

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 (Restraints 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 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
