RE: The tariff classification of a lady's cotton knitted, short-sleeved, pullover shirt, style 2000, from Pakistan.

Dear Ms. Perez:

In your letter dated December 19, 1990, on behalf of Harcrest Int'l Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The fabric of this garment measures more than ten stitches per centimeter, horizontally and vertically.

Styling characteristics include a partial-front, buttoned opening, rib-knitted sleevebands and collar.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6106.10.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's knitted shirts of cotton. The rate of duty will be 21 percent ad valorem.

The shirt falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Pakistan are subject to quota restraints and a visa requirement.

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.
