RE: The Tariff Classification of a Woman's Pullover and Pants from Pakistan.

Dear Mr. Cox:

In your letter dated October 20, 1997, you requested a classification ruling for a lounge set, style 54166. The samples are being returned, as you requested.

The submitted garments are a woman's pullover and pants constructed in 100% polyester velour knit fabric. The knit fabric contains more than 9 stitches per two centimeters, measured in the horizontal direction. The pullover features a round neckline, long hemmed sleeves, and a hemmed bottom with an eight inch slit, extending upward on each side. The pull-on pants feature an elasticized waistband, and plain hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the pants will be 6104.63.2011, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's knit trousers, of synthetic fibers. The rate of duty will be 29.5 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for knit pullovers and similar garments, of man-made fibers, women's. The rate of duty will be 33.5 percent ad valorem.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 639; the pants fall within textile category designation 648. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Pakistan are subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints.

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 Part 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.

If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Angela De Gaetano at 212-466-5540.
