RE: The tariff classification of a man’s pullover from China or Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Malloy:

In your letter dated December 6, 1999, on behalf of Colorado Trading & Clothing Company, you requested a classification ruling. As requested, the sample will be returned to you.

Your submitted sample, style GS15005 is a man's woven nylon pullover. The long sleeved garment features a cross-over rib-knit neckband, rib-knit cuffs and a rib-knit bottom.

The applicable subheading for style GS15005, will be 6211.33.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, men's or boys': of man-made fibers, shirts, excluded from heading 6205. The duty rate will be 16.5 percent ad valorem. The duty rate for 2000 will be 16.4 percent ad valorem.

Style GS15005 falls within textile category designation 640. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China or Taiwan 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 Gerard Shea at 212-637-7082.
