RE: The tariff classification of a sport duffel bag from China.

Dear Ms. Egan:

In your letter dated December 10, 1998, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of your importer, LTD Commodities, Inc., 2800 Lakeside Dr., Bannockburn, IL 60015.

You have submitted descriptive literature for a sport duffel bag composed of 100% 600 D polyester material. This duffel bag includes a toiletry bag that snaps into a front zippered compartment. It also has a large mesh pocket on the back. This bag closes with a top zipper and is carried by two reinforced web double handles with grip.

The applicable subheading for the sport duffel bag will be 4202.92.3031, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, of man-made fibers, other. The duty rate will be 18.8% ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.3031, HTSUSA, fall within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to quota and visa 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 (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.

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.
