RE: The tariff classification of open-work warp knit fabric composed of high density polyethylene from China.

Dear Mr. Morgan:

In your letter dated January 29, 2002, on behalf of your client Warptech, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated as style OSN, is an dyed open-work warp knit fabric composed of 100% high density polyethylene. Weighing approximately 163 g/m2, this fabric will be imported in 122 centimeter widths. This product is characterized by an open mesh with the openings measuring approximately 0.5 inches by 0.5 inches. Your correspondence indicates that this fabric will be used as safety netting.

The applicable subheading for the warp knit fabric will be 6005.32.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for warp knit fabrics (including those made on galloon knitting machines), other than those of headings 6001 to 6004, of synthetic fibers, dyed, open-work fabrics. The rate of duty will be 10.8 percent ad valorem.

At the present time goods classifiable in subheading 6005.32.0010 and produced in China is not subject to either quota restraints or visa requirements.

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 Alan Tytelman at 646-733-3045.
