RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China and Korea.

Dear Mr. Edwards:

In your letter dated October 14, 1999, you requested a classification ruling.

Two samples were provided for review. Style 89015 is a glove constructed of a knitted nylon fabric. The glove features fourchettes, a three line stitch design down the backside knuckle area, and a hemmed bottom with a palmside metal snap closure at the wrist. Style 89063 is the slip-on version (no snap closure) of style 89015. You have indicated that the gloves will be used by military colleges, waiters, and ushers in church.

The applicable subheading for both styles will be 6116.93.9400, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: other: of synthetic fibers: other: other: with. The duty rate will be 19.2 percent ad valorem.

Both styles fall within textile category designation 631. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China and Korea 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 Brian Burtnik at 212-637-7083.
