RE: The tariff classification of greige 100% cotton duck from Pakistan.

Dear Ms. Mossa:

In your letter dated February 9, 2000 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated as style #3164, is a greige 100% cotton woven fabric. It is woven as a plain weave except that each group of two warp ends are woven as one (taped warp). This product contains 29.1 single yarns per centimeter in the warp and 12.2 single yarns per centimeter in the filling. Weighing approximately 356 g/m2, this item will be imported in 165 centimeter widths. Based on the data supplied and the examination of the submitted sample, the average yarn number for this fabric has been calculated to be 11 in the metric system.

The applicable subheading for the woven fabric designated as style #3164 will be 5209.19.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of cotton, containing 85 percent or more by weight of cotton, weighing more than 200 g/m2, unbleached, other fabrics, duck, except plain weave. The duty rate will be 6.5 percent ad valorem.

This fabric falls within textile category designation 219. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Pakistan 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 Alan Tytelman at 212-637-7092.
