RE: The tariff classification of a Travel Bag from Sri Lanka and Korea

Dear Ms. Holbeck:

In your letter dated March 3, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective import is a waterproof nylon bag intended to keep clothing and miscellaneous camping gear dry. It is constructed of 100 percent nylon materials, including the webbing, hardware and the binding tape. The bag measures approximately 15 x 28 inches. The opening has a velco closing and shoulder straps for carrying on the back.

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

The applicable subheading for the Travel Bag will be 4202.92.9026, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel, sports and similar bags, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other, of man-made fibers, other. The rate of duty will be 18.6 percent.

Items classifiable under 4202.92.9026 fall within textile category designation 670. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Korea 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.
