RE: The tariff classification of a shopping bag on wheels from China.

Dear Mr. Nolette:

In your letter dated September 28th, 2000, on behalf of Jam Consultants, Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your request is identified as "décor". The item is a shopping bag on wheels. The exterior surface of the bag is of nylon textile material. The bag is padded and lined on the interior and consists of a single compartment with no additional features. The top opening is secured by a hook and loop closure. Two carry handles are attached to the top of the bag and a zippered pocket is incorporated on the front exterior. Retractable wheels are affixed to the bottom of the bag.

The applicable subheading for the "décor" shopping bag on wheels will be 4202.92.3031, 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 duty rate will be 18.6% ad valorem.

Items classifiable under HTS subheading 4202.92.3031 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 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 Kevin Gorman at 212-637-7091.
