RE: The tariff classification of a Lipstick Holder from China

Dear Ms. Kwok:

In your letter dated December 29, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted for our review is Item No. C3-38907A, a 100 percent polyester woven lipstick holder. The lipstick holder measures approximately 3 x 3 inches. When opened, in the center is a mirror and two elastic bands to hold the lipsticks. The holder folds over with a center snap closure.

Please be advised that your sample will be returned to the above address.

The applicable subheading for the Lipstick Holder will be 4202.32.9550, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 18.8 percent ad valorem.

Items classifiable under 4202.32.9550 fall 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).

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.
