RE: The tariff classification of a men's knit pullover from China. Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated December 14, 1998, you requested a tariff classifi?cation ruling on behalf of Protex Import Corp. As requested, the sample will be returned.

Style M9933 is a men's pullover garment constructed from 100 percent cotton, finely knit jersey fabric which measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style M9933 features a rib knit crew neckline; short, hemmed sleeves; large heat transfer letters on the front panel; a half-moon patch at the rear neckline finished with twill tape at the neck seam; a woven pieced insert on the upper portion of the left sleeve; and a straight, hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for Style M9933 will be 6110.20.2065, Har?monized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: men's or boys'. The duty rate is 18.6 percent ad valorem.

Style M9933 falls within textile category designation 338. Based upon in?ter?national textile trade agree?ments, products of China are subject to a visa re?quire?ment and quota restraints.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the sub?ject mer?chan?dise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of in?ter??na?tion??al bilateral agreements which are sub?ject to frequent re?ne?go?ti?a?tions 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 in?spec?tion 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 this ruling letter or the control number indicated above should be attached to the entry docu?ments filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 212-466-5877.
