RE: The tariff classification of a scarf from Turkey.

Dear Ms. Welsh:

In your letter dated October 15, 1999, on behalf of Two Nations, Inc., you requested a classification ruling. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample is a scarf that you state is composed of woven 50% wool/50% cotton fabric. However, upon examination we have found that the scarf is composed of woven synthetic fibers. The item measures approximately 63” in length and 29 “ in width with fringe at both ends.

The applicable subheading for the scarf will be 6214.30.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Shawls, scarves, mufflers, mantillas, veils and the like: Of other textile materials, Of synthetic fibers.” The duty rate will be 5.3% ad valorem.

The scarf falls within textile category designation 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Turkey are not 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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 212-637-7084.
