RE: The tariff classification of a woman's knit garment from China.

Dear Ms. Suk:

In your letter dated October 28, 1999, you requested a classification ruling.

Style 12003 has been submitted. Style 12003 is a woman's pair of trousers constructed from 100% cashmere knit fabric. This pull-on garment features an elasticized waist band with a drawstring. As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned. The applicable subheading for style 12003 will be 6104.61.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated, which provides for women's or girls'...trousers...of wool or fine animal hair, trousers. The duty rate will be 16% ad valorem.

Style 12003 falls within textile category designation 448. As a product of China this merchandise is currently subject to visa and quota 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 (19 C.F.R. 177).

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.
