RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Kindler:

In your letter dated November 2, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

The submitted sample, style T-11, is a knitted nylon fabric glove which has two-ply construction puncture resistant woven aramid fabric on the complete palmside from fingertips to wrist and the backside fingertips. The glove features a ribbed knit polyester cuff. You have indicated that the glove will be used by workers for protection against cuts and punctures of sharp dirty objects and tainted needles. The essential character of the glove is imparted by the woven aramid palmside material.

The applicable subheading for the glove will be 6216.00.5420, HTS, which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of man-made fibers: other: without fourchettes: other. The duty rate will be 21.5 cents per kilogram plus 10.8 percent ad valorem.

The glove falls within textile category designation 631. 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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Brian Burtnik at 212-466-5880.
