RE: The tariff classification of sliver pile ("long pile") fabric from Thailand

Dear Mr. Hiranwongweera:

In your letter dated February 9, 1993 you requested a classification ruling.

You have enclosed a small swatch of knit fabric, which we assume will be imported as rolls of piece goods. Textile fibers (approximately one inch in length) from carded sliver were inserted into the fabric during the knitting process. You indicate that the fiber content is 50% acrylic and 50% polyester.

The applicable subheading for this sliver pile fabric will be 6001.10.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pile fabrics, including "long pile" fabrics and terry fabrics, knitted or crocheted; "long pile" fabrics; of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 19.5 percent ad valorem.

This sliver pile fabric falls within textile category designation 224. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Thailand are subject to the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories 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.
