RE: The tariff classification of a unisex knit pullover from China, Honduras, Guatemala, Taiwan, UAE, Korea, Saipan, Macau and Bangladesh

Dear Ms. Tumbarello:

In your letter dated May 5, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style MU3-03, is a unisex pullover constructed from 80% cotton/20% polyester brushed French terry knit fabric. The garment features a rib knit crew neck, long hemmed sleeves, and a straight hemmed bottom (slightly longer in back) with side slits.

Your sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers...and similar articles of cotton. The rate of duty will be 19.4% ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 339. As a product of China, Macau, Taiwan, Korea, Bangladesh, UAE and Guatemala, this merchandise is subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements. As a product of Saipan and Honduras, this merchandise is not currently subject to quota or 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. 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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
