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

Dear Ms. Baron:

In your letter dated March 23, 2001, on behalf of Polo Ralph Lauren, 9 Polito Avenue, Lyndhurst, New Jersey, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, the sample will be returned to you.

Your submitted sample, Style 17137 is a 100% cashmere knit woman’s pullover. The sleeveless garment features a round neckline, shoulder straps and a rib-knit bottom. The garment does not fall below the nape of the neck in the back. The outer surface of the pullover measures less than nine stitches per two centimeters in the horizontal direction.

The applicable subheading for Style 17137, will be 6110.10.1020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of wool or fine animal hair: wholly of cashmere, sweaters: women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 5 percent ad valorem.

Style 17137 falls within textile category designation 446. 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.
