RE: The tariff classification of greige 100% cotton plain woven fabric from India.

Dear Ms. Klingbeil:

In your letter dated July 20, 2001 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated as article Haldis number 60032178, is a greige plain woven fabric composed of 100% cotton. It contains 14.2 warp ends per centimeter and 7.9 filling picks per centimeter. This product is constructed using a combination of 20/2 c.c. and 6/2 c.c. yarns in the warp and 2/1 c.c. yarns in the filling. Weighing approximately 385 g/m2, this fabric will be imported in 152 centimeter widths. Based on the data provided and our examination of the sample, the average yarn number for this item has been calculated to be 9 in the metric system.

The applicable subheading for the plain woven fabric will be 5209.11.0090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for woven fabrics of cotton, containing 85 percent or more by weight of cotton, weighing more than 200 g/m2, unbleached, plain weave, plain weave duck. The duty rate will be 6.5 percent ad valorem.

This fabric falls within textile category designation 219. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India 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 Alan Tytelman at 212-637-7092.
