RE: The tariff classification of a pullover for girls’ wear from Mexico, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic

Dear Ms. Disher:

In your letter dated December 7, 2001 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style K469, manufactured from fleece fabric of 50% polyester/50% cotton, is a round-necked garment, the rib-knitted portions of which consist of the neckline and of the cuffs of the long sleeves.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, and similar articles, knitted, of man-made fibers, other, other, other, other, other, .girls’. The duty rate is 32.7 per cent ad valorem, and will be 32.4 per cent ad valorem in 2002.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 639. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Mexico, Honduras, or the Dominican Republic may be 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 Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
