RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pullover from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Imbrogulio:

In your letter dated November 29, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number 11198, a woman’s sleeveless pullover that is constructed from 54% ramie, 40% cotton, 5% nylon, 1% spandex, knit fabric. The outer surface of the pullover measures less than 10 stitches per linear centimeters in the horizontal and vertical directions and more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. The pullover features a one button V-neck opening and a tubular hemmed bottom.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.90.9090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s pullovers, knitted: of other textile materials: other. The duty rate will be 6% ad valorem for 2000 and 2001.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 838. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong 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 Mike Crowley at 212-637-7077.
