RE: The tariff classification of a blanket from China.

Dear Ms. Emrick:

In your letter dated May 6, 2003 you requested a classification ruling.

The item identified as, “LullaWrap” part number GP108, is a blanket. You submitted pictures and a small brochure. The blanket will be made from 100 percent cotton woven flannel fabric. It has rounded corners and the edges are finished with a strip of contrasting fabric. One corner of the blanket has a triangular piece forming a hood. The blanket will measure 34 inches in length by 30 inches in width. The blanket will be used for swaddling newborns.

The applicable subheading for the blanket will be 6301.30.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for blankets and traveling rugs: blankets (other than electric blankets) and traveling rugs, of cotton woven. The duty rate will be 8.5 percent ad valorem.

The blanket falls within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are not subject to quota or visa requirements.

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 Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas, which is available at our Web site at www.cbp.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 John Hansen at 646-733-3043.
