RE: The tariff classification of head-mask from China.

Dear Mr. Parsons:

In your letter dated August 7, 2001 you requested a classification ruling. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample, identified as Camo-Mask, is a head-mask (hood) composed of woven 65% cotton/35% cotton fabric. The item will be used in duck hunting. The head-mask extends to the shoulder, has a vision and mouth hole cut out and two sets of tie straps. The item is made of camouflage pattern material and conceals hunters during duck season.

The applicable subheading for the Camo-Mask will be 6505.90.2060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Hats and other headgearwhether or not lined or trimmed: Other: Not knitted: certified hand-loomed and folklore products; and headwear of cotton.” The duty rate will be 7.6% ad valorem.

The head-mask falls within textile category designation 359. 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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 212-637-7084.
