RE: The tariff classification of a girl’s pullover from Turkey

Dear Ms. Bailey:

In your letter dated May 17, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a girl’s pullover made of 100% cotton knit fabric. The garment, item number, 291451735JAA, features a round neck with elasticized trim and center front bow, hemmed short sleeves, and a hemmed bottom. The pullover will be imported in girls’ sizes 7 to 16.

The applicable subheading for the girl’s pullover will be 6110.20.2075 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: otherother: other: women’s or girls’. The rate of duty will be 18.2 percent ad valorem.

The sample will be returned to you as requested. The pullover falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products from Turkey 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.
