RE: The tariff classification of three women's sweaters from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Watson:

In your letter dated April 2, 1990, on behalf of Speed Sourcing Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Submitted with your inquiry were three samples. The sample sweaters are all of an open work lace design. They are composed of 55% ramie and 45% cotton. The articles are designed to be worn over a camisole.

The first sample, number 2805, is a sweater designed with a square neckline. The sweater will be closed by the use of fabric buttons from the neck to the bottom of the garment. The second sample, number 2806, is a sweater with a V-neckline. The sweater has a finished open front, with no closures. The final sample, number 2833, is also a sweater. The article has a crew neck with plastic buttons down the front for closure.

The applicable subheading for the three sweaters will be 6110.90.0042, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's sweaters, knitted or crocheted: of other textile materials: other: other. The rate of duty will be 6% ad valorem.

The garments fall within textile category designation 845. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to visa requirements.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since 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 Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
