RE: The tariff classification of crocheted applique and a crocheted ribbon from china.

Dear Mr. Chisholm:

In your letter dated December 8, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The samples submitted are a crocheted applique, item number CO666 and a crocheted ribbon, item number HT485. Both articles are made of 80 percent acrylic/20 percent mohair crocheted fabric. Item number CO666 is crocheted into a flower with a stem and leaf. Item number HT485 is crocheted ribbon with floral designs and measures approximately 1-1/2 inches wide.

The applicable subheading for the crocheted applique will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles . . . Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty will remain unchanged in 2001.

The applicable subheading for the crocheted ribbon will be 6002.20.6000, HTS, which provides for other knitted or crocheted fabrics: Other, of a width not exceeding 30 cm: Other: Of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 8 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty effective January 1, 2001 will be 7.9 percent ad valorem.

The crocheted ribbon falls within textile category designation 222. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China 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 Mitchel Bayer at 212-637-7086.
