RE: The tariff classification of hats from Macau.

Dear Ms. Mossa:

In your letter dated December 19, 1999, received in this office on January 24, 2000, you requested a classification ruling. The samples will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted samples, style #s 6760, 6730 and 6750 are hats composed of knit 100% polyester fabric. Style 6760 is identified as “Fleece Pull on Cap”, style #6730 is identified as “Chill Fleece Pull-on Cap with turned up cuff” and style # 6750 “Two Color Fleece Hat”.

The applicable subheading for style #s 6760, 6730 and 6750 will be “6505.90.6090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Hats and other headgear, knitted or crocheted, or made up from lace, felt or other textile fabric, in the piece (but no in strips), whether or not lined or trimmed; hair-nets of any material, whether or not lined or trimmed: Other: Of man-made fibers: Not in part of braid, Other: Other: Other.” The duty rate will be 27.9 cents/kg + 9.8% ad valorem.

Style #s 6760, 6730 and 6750 fall within textile category designation 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Macau are not subject to quota but are subject to a 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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 212-637-6084.
