RE: The tariff classification of a hay net from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Roddy:

In your letter dated October 7, 1999, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Jack’s Manufacturing, Inc.

You submitted a sample of an item you call a Hay Net. You state that it is used exclusively for the purpose of containing and hanging a bale of hay for horses to eat. It is made of knotted cotton cordage. The bottom end is tied shut and the top is able to be drawn shut by means of a cord threaded through a series of metal rings.

The applicable subheading for the Hay Net will be 5608.90.2700, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for knotted netting of twine, cordage or rope, made up fishing nets and other made up nets, of textile materials, other, other, of cotton, other. The duty rate will be 15 percent ad valorem.

The Hay Net falls within textile category designation 229. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Taiwan are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web site at www.customs.gov. In addition, 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 and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

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 Camille Ferraro at 212-637-7086.
