RE: The tariff classification of a womans knit sweater from China.

Dear Mr.Suk:

In your letter dated June 18, 1999, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, identified by style number 24300868, is a womans full-fashioned cardigan sweater composed of 55% silk and 45% cashmere jersey knit fabric. The fabric contains fewer than nine stitches per 2 centimeters when measured in the horizontal direction.

The sweater features a round neckline, full frontal opening secured by eight buttons, long sleeves with 1X1 rib knit cuffs, and a 1X1 rib knit hip-length bottom. The sample which has been submitted with your inquiry will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the sweater will be 6110.90.9028, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of other textile materials: other, sweaters for womens or girls: subject to wool restraints. The duty rate will be 6% ad valorem.

The sweater falls within textile category designation 446. As a product of China, this merchandise is subject to quota restraints and visa requirements 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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations.

A copy of this ruling 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.
