RE: The tariff classification and status under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), of coated knit gloves shipped from Canada; Article 509

Dear Ms. Tierney:

In your letter dated September 8, 1994, on behalf of Best Glove Manufacturing Limited, you requested a ruling on the status of coated knit gloves shipped from Canada under the NAFTA.

The submitted sample, style 765-YR-L, is a knit work glove which is has a heavy rubber coating on the exterior. The cuff-less glove is twelve inches in length.

The applicable tariff provision for the glove will be 6116.10.7040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for gloves, mittens, and mitts, knitted or crocheted: . . . coated or covered with plastics or rubber: other: without fourchettes: other. The general rate of duty will be 14 per cent ad valorem.

The merchandise does not qualify for preferential treatment under the NAFTA because one or more of the non-originating materials used in the production of the goods will not undergo the change in tariff classification required by General Note 12(t)/6116.10.7040, HTSUSA.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 181 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 181).

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.

Should you wish to request an administrative review of this ruling, submit a copy of this ruling and all relevant facts and arguments within 30 days of the date of this letter, to the Director, Office of Regulations and Rulings, U.S. Customs Service, 1301 Constitution Ave. N.W., Franklin Court, Washington, D.C. 20229.
