RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pullover from Korea

Dear Mr. Sherman:

In your letter dated April 17, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number 23-58295, is a woman’s sleeveless knit pullover with a turtleneck and a hemmed bottom. The outer surface of the pullover measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. You state that the fiber content is 75% wool, 15% metallic, 10% nylon.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

In order to verify the fiber content of the pullover and to analyze the yarn structure of the fabric, we have submitted the sample to the U.S. Customs Laboratory in New York. The laboratory has reported that the fabric is composed of two yarns, one of which is completely composed of wool fibers, while the other is a 3-ply metallized yarn. The metallized yarn consists of two 48.4% nylon yarns and one 51.6% mylar type metallic yarn. The overall fiber content of the pullover is 70% wool, 14.5% nylon, 15.5% mylar type metallic.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.10.2080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s pullovers, knitted: of wool or fine animal hair: other: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 16.3% ad valorem.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 438. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Korea 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 effected 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.
