RE: The tariff classification of a women's sweater from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated March 12, 1996 you requested a tariff classification ruling for Style 7s882, which will be returned to you as requested.

Style 7s882 is a women's knit sweater constructed from 70% acrylic, 30% wool boucle yarn. The garment measures less than nine stitches per two centimeters in the horizontal direction. The sweater features a full front zippered opening, two diagonally opening front pockets, long sleeves, a hood and rib knit waistband.

The applicable subheading for the sweater will be 6110.30.1520, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests), and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers: Other: Containing 23 percent or more by weight of wool or fine animal hair: Sweaters: Women's or girls'. The rate of duty will be 17%.

Style 7s882 falls within textile category designation 446. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Taiwan are subject to quota and 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. 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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
