RE: The tariff classification of twisted nylon cord on a spool from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Smith:

In your letter dated August 16, 2001, you requested a ruling on behalf of Lowes Companies, Inc., on tariff classification.

You describe the merchandise as twisted nylon twine, #18, 0.06” in diameter, with a linear weight of 10 grams per 10 meters, which works out to a decitex of 1,000.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 5406.10.0090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for man-made filament yarn (other than sewing thread), put up for retail sale: synthetic filament yarn, other. The general rate of duty will be 9.2 percent ad valorem.

This product falls within textile category designation 200. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong are currently 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 Mitchel Bayer at 212-637-7086.
