RE: The tariff classification of knit man-made gloves and mittens from China.

Dear Mr. Pellegrini:

In your letter dated March 23, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Paris Asia, Ltd. The glove and mitten provided will be returned as requested.

You submitted representative samples of a women’s 100% acrylic string-knit cold weather glove and mitten identified as style #’s 9555 and 9509, respectively. Both are full-fingered models and feature folded back rib-knit cuffs.

The applicable subheading for style #’s 9555 and 9509, women’s gloves and mittens, will be 6116.93.8800, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States(HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: Other: Of synthetic fibers: Other: Other: Without fourchettes... The rate of duty will be 19 percent ad valorem.

Both styles fall within textile category designation 631. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

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. Since 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 this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact Field National Import Specialist Robert Haspray at 802-524-7351 x219 or National Import Specialist Brian Burtnick at 212-637-7083.
