RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s cotton knit cardigan from Macau

Dear Mr. Rodriguez:

In your letter dated July 21, 2000, on behalf of your client, Mark Group, Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

Style BPK9722 is a woman’s 80% cotton/20% polyester terry knit cardigan constructed with more than nine stitches per two centimeters measured in the horizontal direction. The garment extends slightly below the waist and features a full frontal opening with heavy zipper closure; long sleeves with hemmed cuffs and overlay on the shoulders; pockets at or below the waist; a hood with drawcord; and a hemmed bottom. You have advised in your letter that the cardigan is designed to be worn over another garment.

The applicable subheading for the cardigan 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: other:other:other:women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 18.2 per cent ad valorem.


Styles BPK9722 falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products from Macau are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

As requested, the sample will be returned.

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 control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. Sincerely,

Paul Rimmer
Acting Port Director Houston/Galveston
