RE: The tariff classification of a women’s knit hooded pullover sweater to be manufactured in Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Librach:

In your letter dated February 7, 2001, which was received by Customs on February 21, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated style number 05309, is a women’s hooded pullover sweater manufactured from a 100% acrylic fabric having five stitches per two centimeters measured in the direction the stitches were formed.

The garment features long sleeves with rib knit cuffs, a kangaroo patch pocket below the waist, and a straight, rib knit bottom.

The applicable subheading for the garment is 6110.30.3020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for other women’s sweaters, knitted or crocheted, of man-made fibers. The applicable rate of duty is 32.7% ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 646. Based on international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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 Field National Import Specialist Gary Geoffrion at (440) 891-3818 or National Import Specialist Michael Crowley at (212) 637-7077.
