RE: The tariff classification of a TOILETRY BAG from China.

Dear Ms. Kwok:

In your letter received at Customs October 7,1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your request, item C35295A, is a toiletry bag approximately 7"x 5.5"x 2" in size. The bag has an undivided, heavy vinyl lined interior, a top zipper closure and two carry straps. The outer surface is a textile fabric of 100
woven polyester.

The applicable subheading for item C35295A will be 4202.92.3031, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man made fibers, other. The rate of duty will be 19 percent ad valorem.

This bag 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 transaction.
