RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit sweater of man-made fibers from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Mobley:

In your letter dated September 21,1999, you requested a classification ruling.

Style 820-5256 is a woman’s sweater of 70% acrylic/30% nylon knit fabric constructed with fewer than nine stitches per two centimeters measured in the horizontal direction. The sleeveless garment extends below the waist and features a cowl neck; and a rib bottom and armholes.

The applicable subheading for the sweater will be 6110.30.3020,Harmonized 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:other:sweaters:women’s. The duty rate will be 33.1% percent ad valorem.

Style 820-5256 falls within textile category designation 646. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products from Hong Kong are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

As requested, the sample will be returned.

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