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

Dear Ms. Markowitz:

In your letter dated September 19, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Crystal Knitters, Ltd.

The submitted sample, style AK2638, is a woman's cardigan made from 100% cotton knitted fabric. The garment has a full frontal opening with zipper closure, a collar and raglan sleeves with turn-back cuffs. The body and collar of the garment are a 2x2 rib knit fabric which has more than nine stitches per two centimeters measured in the horizontal direction. The cuffs and bottom of the garment are of a finer rib knit. The sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the cardigan will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: other: women's or girls'. The rate of duty will be 19.4 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories 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 the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
