Dear Mr. Davis:

In your letter dated December 19, 2001, on behalf of Cache Corporation, 1460 Broadway, NY, NY 10036, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number 47474, is a woman’s sleeveless pullover that is constructed from 100% nylon, openwork knitted lace fabric (entire front), and 78% silk, 22% spandex , 2x2 rib knit fabric (the collar, the back panel, the armholes) . The pullover features a mock collar.

The essential character of the pullover is imparted by the entire front; Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States(HTS), General Rules of Interpretation(GRI), Rule 3, noted.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pulloversand similar articles, knitted: of man-made fiber: otherother: women’s. The duty rate will be 32.4% ad valorem.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 639. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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 646-733-3049.
