RE: The tariff classification of women’s 100% linen knitted sweater from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Girvin:

In your letter dated September 29, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Item No. 081-0406 (regular sizes), 081-0407 (petite sizes), and 081-0408 (tall sizes) is a woman’s 100% linen knitted sweater. It is a sleeveless garment with a round neckline with no opening at the neckline. It has a clean-finished bottom. The sweater is constructed with 9 stitches per 2 centimeters measured in the direction the stitches were formed.

The applicable subheading for item numbers 081-0406, 081-0407, and 081-0408 is 6110.90.9042, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other women’s or girls’ sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, of other textile materials, knitted or crocheted. The rate of duty will be 6%.

The sweater falls within textile category designation 845. 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 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, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection 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 the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
