RE: The tariff classification of a man's knit pullover from El Salvador and Costa Rica.

Dear Ms. Weinberg:

In your letter dated April 3, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Champion Products.

Style number T1011 is a man's pullover which is manufactured from 100 percent cotton, heavy weight, jersey knit fabric. The garment features short, hemmed sleeves; a rib knit crew neck; and a hemmed bottom. There is a screen printed "Champion" logo on the left chest and an applique on the left sleeve.

The applicable subheading for Style number T1011 will be 6110.20.2065, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: other: men's or boys'. The duty rate will be 20.3 percent ad valorem.

Style number T1011 falls within textile category designation 338. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of El Salvador and Costa Rica are not subject to visa requirements or quota restraints.

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 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 already been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
