RE: The tariff classification of a woman's garment from Korea.

Dear Mr. Stack:

In your letter dated April 16, 1990, on behalf of Liz Claiborne, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style No. 246582 is a woman's sweater-like cardigan constructed from 78% cotton, 22% polyester, velour fabric. The fabric measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. The garment features a deep V-neckline; long sleeves; a full front opening with a five button closure; and two inset pockets below the waist. The garment is lined with knit fabric and there is a thin layer of non-woven batting material between the shell and the lining, all sewn together in a diamond stitch pattern. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's sweaters...and similar articles, knitted: of cotton: other. The rate of duty will be 20.7% ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Korea 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.
