RE: The tariff classification of a woven and knit shirt for boys from Macao.

Dear Ms. Ateshkadi:

In your letter dated April 12, 1990 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, stock 96486, is a boy's shirt. Its woven portion is 100% nylon; its knit portion is 65% polyester and 35% cotton. The garment is a pullover with a partial opening secured by a zipper. The hood, the long sleeves and the front and back yokes of the garment are woven; the remainder of the garment is knit. The garment has a rib knit waistband and the sleeves have rib knit cuffs. The woven area constitutes 60% of the surface area of the garment.

As you requested, your sample is being returned to you.

The applicable subheading for the submitted sample will be 6205.30.2080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for boys' shirts of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 30.9 cents per kilogram plus 27.5% ad valorem.

The sample submitted falls within textile category designation 640. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Macao are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

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.
