RE: The tariff classification of a man's sweater from the People's Republic of China.

Dear Ms. Heimerle:

In your letter, which was dated July 06, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style number S53028 is a man's sweater constructed from 39 percent silk, 32 percent cotton, 26 percent linen and 3 percent hemp intarsia knit fabric containing 3 stitches per 2 centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. The garment has a rib knit, crew neckline; long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; and a rib knit waistband.

Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Style S53028 will be 6110.90.9020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of other textile materials: other: sweaters for men or boys': other: other: of silk: other. The duty rate will be 6 percent ad valorem.

Style S53028 falls within textile category designation 846. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of the People's Republic of China are subject to visa requirements and 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, these rulings should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
