RE: The tariff classification of a woman's sweater from China.

Dear Mr. Follick:

In your letter dated August 18, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Manhattan Surplus Limited. The sample will be returned as requested.

The garment, style 5090-S1, is a sweater of 55% ramie/45% cotton and features long sleeves, a full frontal buttoned opening, a collar, and is beaded and embroidered on the sleeve cuff and front of the garment. The collar is composed of a 90% polyester/10% spandex fabric which is also used to trim the sleeve hem, waistband and frontal closure. The garment measures less than nine stitches per two centimeters in the horizontal direction.

The applicable subheading for the sweater will be 6110.90.9042, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts...and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, of other textile materials, other, sweaters for women or girls, other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 6%.

The sweater falls within textile category designation 845. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China 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.
