RE: The tariff classification of a polyethylene mesh fabric cosmetic/travel accessory bag from China

Dear Ms. Cochran:

In your letter dated October 12, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item which Atico International USA, Incorporated intends to import is a cylindrically shaped mesh woven polyethylene “cosmetic”/travel accessory bag (style H11B3299) measuring approximately 5 inches in height and having a diameter of approximately 5 1/2 inches. The bag has a zip around top closure and a textile webbing carry handle at its top. It is unlined and can carry a variety of different personal items during travel.

The applicable subheading for the travel accessory bag 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.

Item 4202.92.3031 falls within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China 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). The sample is being returned herewith in accordance with your request.

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.
