RE: The tariff classification of a SPECTACLE CASE from CHINA.

Dear Mr. Parsons :

In your letter dated May 13, 1998 you requested a tariff
classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your request, no item number, is a
spectacle case. The item is in the shape of a pair of glasses,
has full top zipper closure and a plastic clip for attaching the
item to a belt loop. This case is constructed of a man made
textile material covering a neoprene inner material. The outer
surface is of man made textile materials.

The applicable subheading for the spectacle case will be

4202.32.9550, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States

(HTS), which provides for articles of a kind normally carried in
the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of textile
materials, other, other, of man made fibers. The rate of duty
will be 19 percent ad valorem.

This case 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.

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
