RE: The tariff classification of a woman's cardigan from Colombia.

Dear Ms. Pitt:

In your letter dated November 17, 1989, on behalf of The Hartwell Company, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a ladies' sweater-like cardigan of 100% cotton knit construction. The fabric from which it is made contains more than nine stitches per 2 centimeters measured in the horizontal direction. The garment also features a full front opening with a four button closure, and two pockets at the waist.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts...and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, of cotton, women's or girls'. The rate of duty will be 20.7 percent ad valorem.

This merchandise falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Colombia are subject to a visa requirement.

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 been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
