RE: The tariff classification of a woman's knit garment from Macau.

Dear Ms. Fuller:

In your letter dated June 14, 1996, you requested a classification ruling.

Style 2407-ID has been submitted. Style 2407- ID is a woman's cardigan constructed from 100% cotton fabric with over nine stitches per two centimeters. This garment features a full front opening secured by six buttons, a collar, long sleeves, two slant pockets at the waist and one chest pocket. As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for style 2407-ID will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated, which provides for sweaters...and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, of cotton, other...other, women's or girls' . The duty rate will be 19.9% ad valorem.

Style 2407-ID falls within textile category designation 339. As a product of Macau this merchandise is currently subject to visa and quota requirements 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.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations.

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.
