RE: The tariff classification of a pullover for boys’wear from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Dawson:

In your letter dated October 11, 1999 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted garment is style TL132099, design number R3580, size 2T, manufactured from jersey fabric of 100% cashmere, which you state will be knitted to a gauge of twelve stitches per two centimeters.

Characteristics of this pullover garment include a partial-front, buttoned opening, a shirt collar, side slits at the waist, and an embroidered logo at the chest. Rib-knitted portions are found around the waist and at the cuffs of the long sleeves.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6110.10.1050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullover, and similar garments, knittedof wool or fine animal hair:wholly of cashmere, otherboys’. The duty rate will be 5.8 per cent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 445. 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 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 the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Kirschner at 212-637-7079.
