RE: The tariff classification of a womens pullover style garment from the United Arab Emirates

Dear Ms. Broadford:

In your letter dated August 15, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style MM101S, is a ladies pullover style garment, which is manufactured from 100% cotton fine knit fabric. The garment features a V neck, short hemmed sleeves and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters...and similar garments, of cotton. The rate of duty will be 19.4%.

The garment falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of the United Arab Emirates 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.

Port Director
