Dear Ms. Nechanicky:

In your letter dated April 21, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, the sample will be returned to you.

The knee length socks feature a rib-knit elasticized top. You state these socks will also come in style 6030 young adult (sizes 9-11) and style 6031 youth (sizes 7-9), these styles will be identical to style 6035 except for the size.

The applicable subheading for all styles will be 6115.93.9020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for panty hose, socks . . . knitted or crocheted: other; of synthetic fibers: other: other, other. The rate of duty will be 14.7 percent ad valorem.

Taiwan and China are members of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the socks are not subject to quota or the requirement of visa.
