RE: The tariff classification of a womans 100% boiled wool pullover from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated February 9, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample was submitted. It is designated as styles 52-23220 (missy) and 66-12403 (petite). The garment submitted is a pullover made of 100% boiled wool containing approximately 18 stitches per two centimeters in the horizontal direction. It has a round neck, long sleeves hemmed at the cuff and a hemmed bottom. As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.10.2080 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, of wool or fine animal hair, other, other, womens or girls. The rate of duty will be 16.5 percent ad valorem.

The vest falls within textile category designation 438. As a product of Hong Kong, this merchandise is currently subject to visa requirements and quota restrictions based upon international textile trade agreements.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since 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 Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
