RE: The tariff classification of toiletry bags from China.

Dear Mr. Sekin:

In your letter dated February 24, 1999, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of your importer, Betsy Whitson Enterprises, Inc.

The submitted samples are styles #BW-1047A ( horseshoe bag) and BW-1049 (drawstring bag). Each of these bags are constructed of 100% Nylon mesh material and 100% polyester velour material. The horseshoe bag closes with a zipper around the complete bag and is carried by a self fabric handle. The drawstring bag closes with a drawstring and is carried by two self fabric handles.

The applicable subheading for style #BW-1047A and style #BW-1049 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.
