RE: The tariff classification of a womans cardigan from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Dairo:

In your letter dated April 27, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The garment, Style 3996, is a womans hooded cardigan constructed of a 100% knit boiled wool fabric. The fabric is constructed with more than nine stitches per two centimeters measured in the horizontal direction. The cardigan which extends to the hip features a full front opening secured by a zipper, long sleeves and two front inset pockets below the waist. The hood, placket, bottom, pockets and cuffs have a tubular rib knit capped finishing. The sample submitted for Customs examination will be returned to you under separate cover.

The applicable subheading for the cardigan will be 6110.10.2080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for womens sweaters, pullovers..., 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 garment falls within textile category designation 438. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong 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.
