RE: The tariff classification of a curtain panel from China.

Dear Ms. D'Antoni:

In your letter dated November 30, 1998 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a curtain panel which will be used as a scarf valance or a curtain panel. The panel is made from made from 100 percent acrylic fibers. It is woven with chenille yarns. The ends feature a 6.5 inch knotted fringe. The panel measures 40 by 70 inches including the fringe. This item is sold and advertised as a curtain panel. As requested the sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the curtain panel will be 6303.92.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for curtains (including drapes) and interior blinds; curtain or bed valances: other: of synthetic fibers: other. The duty rate will be 12.2 percent ad valorem. The duty rate for 1999 will be 12 percent ad valorem.

The curtain panel falls within textile category designation 666. 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).

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 John Hansen at 212-466-5854.
