RE: The tariff classification of woven gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Ross:

In your letter dated July 15, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The provided sample, style 4612, is a fully lined glove. The shell material is made of 84% polyester 16% nylon woven fabric. The fourchettes and overlaid reinforcement covering the palm, palmside of the first two fingers and thumb are made of leather. An internal fabric-backed vinyl strip with foam padding is inserted over the knuckle area. Additional features include a hook and clasp, a fully elasticized wrist and a capped cuff. The glove shows a design for use in the sport of alpine skiing with essential character of glove imparted by woven shell fabric.

The applicable subheading for style 4612 will be 6216.00.4600, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of man-made fibers: other gloves, mittens and mitts, all the foregoing specially designed for use in sports, including ski and snowmobile gloves, mittens and mitts. The rate of duty will be 3.3 percent ad valorem.

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 Brian Burtnik at 646-733-3054.
