RE: The tariff classification of a boys' knit sweater from Indonesia.

Dear Mr. Plenby:

In your letter dated April 29, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style X167BUR491 is a boys' sweater constructed from 100 percent cotton, cable knit fabric which measures 9 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style X167BUR491 features a rib knit crew neckline; long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; and a rib knit bottom.

You have stated that the garment will be imported in boys' sizes 8-20 and that the middle letters in the style number designate the colors of the garment. The middle letters will be BUR, BLK, GRN, GRY and NVY.

The applicable subheading for Style X167BUR491 will be 6110.20.2015, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles: of cotton: other: other: other: sweaters: boys'. The duty rate will be 19 percent ad valorem.

Style X167BUR491 falls within textile category designation 345. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Indonesia 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 or the control number listed above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 212-466-5877.
