RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s sweater from China

Dear Mr. McMenamin:

In your letter dated May 28, 1999, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style 335, is a woman’s sweater of 75% silk and 25% cashmere. The sweater is knit with fewer than nine stitches per two centimeters measured in the direction the stitches were formed, and features long sleeves and a hood.

The applicable subheading for the sweater will be 6110.90.1020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests), and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, of other textile materials, containing 70 percent or more by weight of silk or silk waste, sweaters, women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 3.4%.

Style 335 falls within textile category designation 746. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products in textile category designation 746 from China are not presently subject to quota or the requirements of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service which is available at the Customs Web Site at WWW. CUSTOMS.GOV. In addition, 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 and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

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 or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
