RE: The tariff classification of a woman's knit pullover from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Wong:

In your letter dated January 25, 1995, resubmitted on February 10, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your sample is being returned as requested.

Style Number S7102 is a woman's knit pullover with short sleeves. There is no opening starting at the round, capped neckline. The sleeve endings and bottom are finished with a tubular knit construction. The pullover has inside shoulder pads. The fabric of the pullover has more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters, measured in the horizontal direction. The pullover is made in Hong Kong.

In order to classify this style we have submitted it to the U.S. Customs Laboratory at New York for an analysis of its fiber content and yarn structure. The laboratory has reported that the pullover is constructed with two 2-ply yarns, one of which is metallic, while the other is a blend of acrylic and wool. The fiber content of the pullover is 41.9% wool, 40.6% acrylic and 17.5% metallic yarn.

The applicable subheading for Style S7102 will be 6110.10.2080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers and similar articles, knitted, of wool, other, other women's. The duty rate will be 16.9% ad valorem.

Style S7102 falls within textile category designation 438. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong are subject to quota restraints 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. 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.
