RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pullover from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Moises:

In your letter dated October 9, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number 99110, is a woman’s pullover that is constructed from 52% ramie, 42% cotton, 6% spandex, knit fabric and 65% polyester, 35% cotton, woven fabric (the collar and neckline, the sleeve cuffs). The outer surface of the pullover measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. The garment features a pointed collar, a V-neckline, long sleeves with slitted cuffs, and a ribbed bottom.

Your sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.90.9090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pullovers: of other textile materials: otherother: women’s. The duty rate will be 6% ad valorem.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 838. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong 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.
