RE: The tariff classification of twisted rope from India

Dear Mr. Paharia:

In your letter dated January 20, 2000, you requested a classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of rope which you state is 100 percent nylon. It is a three ply twisted rope made of filament yarns. It is a yellow/gold in color. The diameter measures approximately 5 mm.

The applicable subheading for the rope will be 5607.50.3500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for twine, cordage, ropes and cables, of other synthetic fibers, not braided or plaited, other. The duty rate will be 23 cents per kg. plus 12.5 percent ad valorem .

The rope falls within textile category designation 201. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India 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 Camille Ferraro at 212-637-7086.
