Dear Mr. Spoto:

This is in response to your letter dated August 27, 2001, on behalf of Sydni B Jordan Inc., 525 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY, requesting a ruling on whether the proposed marking "Made in Myanmar (Burma)" is an acceptable country of origin marking for a imported woman’s cotton knit pullover. A marked sample was submitted with your letter for review. The sample is returned as requested.

The submitted style 7260 is a woman’s 60% cotton and 40% polyester knitted v-neck pullover. The garment features a woven collar and placket, long sleeves with woven cuffs and a hemmed bottom. The label is located in the center of the neck and is securely sewn. It measures ¾ inches wide and ¾ inches long. The size and fabrication are on the label. In addition is the statement, “Made in Myanmar (Burma)”.

The marking statute, section 304, Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1304), provides that, unless excepted, every article of foreign origin (or its container) imported into the U.S. shall be marked in a conspicuous place as legibly, indelibly and permanently as the nature of the article (or its container) will permit, in such a manner as to indicate to the ultimate purchaser in the U.S. the English name of the country of origin of the article.

The proposed marking of imported pullover, as described above, is conspicuously, legibly and permanently marked in satisfaction of the marking requirements of 19 U.S.C. 1304 and 19 CFR Part 134 and is an acceptable country of origin marking for the imported pullover.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 CFR Part 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.
