RE: The Tariff Classification of a Boys’ Cotton/Polyester Knit Shirt from Oman, United Arab Emirates

Dear Mr. Stein:
In your letter dated February 21, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Strategic Partners, Inc.

The buttons fasten left over right. You state the size range will be Boys’ XXS (3/4) through XXL (18/20). The sample will be returned to you.

The applicable subheading for the Boys’ 60% Cotton/40% Polyester Knit Shirt will be 6105.10.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Men’s or boys’ shirts, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Boys’: Other. The rate of duty is 20.1%.

The Boys’ Jersey Knit Long Sleeve Shirt falls within Textile Category 338. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of the United Arab Emirates are subject to quota and the requirements of a visa.

Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web Site at WWW.CUSTOMS.GOV. In addition, the designated textile and apparel categories maybe 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.
