RE: The tariff classification of a mechanics glove from China

Dear Ms. Hagar:

In your letter received by our office on July 30, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style MG-05-012 (MECHANIX GLOVE) is a full fingered glove with a synthetic leather palm, fourchettes and back of the fingertips. The back of the hand has a three ply construction of man-made mesh fabric, padding and knit liner. The glove features vented fourchettes, and as elasticized wrist strap secured with a hook and loop fabric tab over a side vent.

The importer submitted advertising information which indicates that the item is designed for professional mechanics and racing enthusiasts for use during racing. Noting the design features and choice of materials we agree with that assertion.

The applicable subheading for the glove will be 6216.00.4600, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of man-made-fibers: . . . designed for use in sports, . . .. The rate of duty will be 5 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Brian Burtnik at 212-466-5880.
