RE: The tariff classification of gloves from Sri Lanka.

Dear Mr. Kindler:

In your letter dated November 24, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style 1790, is a string-knit aramid fiber work glove with a glued on latex coating that covers the entire palmside from the wrist up to and over the fingertips on the backside. You have indicated that the weight breakdown of the glove is 55% latex coating 45% aramid fibers. The glove features overlock stitching at the wrist.

The applicable subheading for style 1790 will be 6116.10.6500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber: other: without fourchettes: other. The rate of duty will be 11.2 percent ad valorem. In 1999, the rate of duty will be 10.5 percent ad valorem.

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.
