Dear Mr. DePouli:

In your letter dated 16, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The supplier is Xiamen Non-Wovens Co., Ltd, China.

Your letter states that you wish to import liquid filtration bags manufactured from needleloom felt material of a 380 g/mý weight of either 100% polyester or 100% polypropylene man-made fibers. A brochure was supplied. These filter bags will contain a ring at the open end consisting of plain iron wire, galvanized wire, stainless steel or plastic. The finished bags measure about 2 feet in length and 7 inches in diameter.

These bags have numerous uses in filtration which includes such things as prefiltering dirty water obtained from wells, rivers or lakes, filtering paint after manufacture and filtering a wide variety of liquid chemicals, etc.

The applicable subheading for these filter bags is 5911.90.0080, HTS, which provides for textile products and articles for technical use. The duty rate is 6 percent ad valorem. Effective January 1, 1999, the rate of duty will be 5.6 percent ad valorem.

There are no textile restraints for this tariff number.

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 George Barth at 212-466-5884.
