RE: The tariff classification of an infant's, finely knit cardigan from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Dugan:

This classification decision under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) is being issued in accordance with the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

DATE OF INQUIRY : January 15, 1991

MERCHANDISE : The submitted sample, style 9062-0, is an infant's, 70 percent polyester, 30 percent cotton, finely knit cardigan.
There are more than 10 stitches per linear centimeter in each direction counted on an area measuring at least
10 centimeters by 10 centimeters. The garment has a full front snap opening, long sleeves, a V-neck, a napped interior, two pockets at the waist front, an applique, embroidery, and ribbing at the neck, sleeve cuffs and bottom. Style 9062-0 will be imported in infants' sizes 3 to 24 months.

HTS PROVISION : Babies' garments and clothing accessories, knitted or crocheted, of synthetic fibers, sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, except those imported as parts of sets.

HTS SUBHEADING : 6111.30.4000

RATE OF DUTY : 34.6 percent ad valorem


REQUIREMENTS : Subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements. 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.

OTHER : The sample will be returned as requested.

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.
