RE: The tariff classification of men's knitted insulated gloves from China.

Dear Ms. Rickert:

In your letter dated April 16, 1996, filed in behalf of LTD Commodities Incorporated, you requested a classification ruling. You have submitted a sample of a men's insulated glove, style GVT, which has an knitted outer shell made of 55% acrylic, 30% wool and 15% polyester. The glove has a knit sewn-in liner bonded to a non-woven insulation interliner. It features a ribbed cuff which provides tightening at the wrist.

The applicable subheading for style GVT will be 6116.93.6400, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: other: of synthetic fibers: other: containing 23 percent or more by weight of wool or fine animal hair: without fourchettes. The duty rate will be 32.7 cents per kilogram plus 7.3 percent ad valorem.

Style GVT falls within textile category designation 431. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China 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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Brian Burtnik at 212-466-5880.
