RE: The tariff classification of knit pile fabric from China

Dear Ms. Tsuboi:

In your letter dated June 15, 1998 you requested a classification ruling on behalf of China Brush/Britbull Industries.

You have submitted a sample swatch of knit pile fabric which you state will be imported as bales of piece goods. You state that the pile fabric will be used to manufacture paint rollers. The fiber content is claimed to be 100% acrylic pile and 100% polyester backing. In our telephone conversation you stated that the width of the fabric is 60 inches.

The applicable subheading for the knit pile fabric will be 6001.10.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pile fabrics, including "long pile" fabrics and terry fabrics, knitted or crocheted, "long pile" fabrics, of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 18.6 percent ad valorem.

The fabric falls within textile category designation 224. 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 Camille Ferraro at 212-
