The applicable subheading for the woven fabric designated as style RF6051 “Blackout Fabric” will be 5407.53.2060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of synthetic filament yarn, including woven fabrics obtained from materials of heading 5404, other woven fabrics, containing 85 percent or more by weight of textured polyester filaments, of yarns of different colors, other, weighing more than 170 g/m2. The rate of duty will be 12.5 percent ad valorem.

This woven fabric which is classifiable in subheading 5407.53.2060, HTS, is subject to neither quota restraints nor visa requirements when produced in Vietnam.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
