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

Dear Mr. Chubb:

In your letter dated March 14, 1994, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style ES2, is a woman's sleeveless sweater vest constructed from 100% wool, knit fabric. The fabric on the front and back consist of less than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. The sweater features a V-neckline; oversized armholes; a full front opening with a five button placket; a left chest pocket; side vents and a straight hemmed bottom. The neckline, armholes, placket, pocket, front panels and garment bottom are finished with a decorative stitching.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6110.10.2030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's sweaters, knitted: of wool or fine animal hair: other. The rate of duty will be 17% ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 446. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to visa requirements.

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.
