RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pullover from Mexico and Honduras

Dear Ms. Disher:

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

The submitted sample, style number J831, is a woman’s sleeveless pullover that is constructed from 100% cotton, knit fabric. You state in your letter that style J831 will also be made from 100% polyester, knit fabric. The outer surface of the pullover has more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters measured in the horizontal direction. The garment features a round neckline and a hemmed bottom.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for style J831, of cotton, will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s pullovers, knitted: of cotton: other. The duty rate will be 17.8% ad valorem for 2001 and 17.3% for 2002..

The applicable HTS subheading for style J831, of manmade fibers, will be 6110.30.3055, which provides for women’s pullovers, knitted: of man-made fibers: other. The duty rate for 2001 will be 32.7% ad valorem and 32.4% for 2002.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 339 (cotton) and 639 (man-made fibers). Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Mexico and Honduras are not subject to quota nor 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 Mike Crowley at 646-733-3049.
