RE: The tariff classification of two women’s pullovers from Guatemala

Dear Ms. Disher:

In your letter dated September 18, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted two samples. Styles SL12 and SL13 are two women’s pullovers that are constructed from 100% cotton, 1x1 rib knit fabric. The outer surface of each garment measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. The pullovers feature V-necklines, three quarter length hemmed sleeves, and hemmed bottoms.

Your samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for each pullover will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pullovers, knitted: of cotton: otherother: women’s. The duty rate will be 17.3% ad valorem.

Each pullover falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Guatemala are neither 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.
