RE: The tariff classification of a dishcloth from Pakistan.

Dear Mr. Hoffacker:

In your letter dated August 29, 2003 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, identified as item # DU97379ASST, is 14-pack of dishcloths. The cloths are made from 100 percent cotton. The fabric is woven with a waffle effect. They measure approximately 13 inches square. The edges are finished with an overlock stitch. As requested the samples are being returned.

The applicable subheading for the dishcloths will be 6307.10.2027, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles, including dress patterns: floorcloths, dishcloths, dusters and similar cleaning cloths: other: dish cloths: of cotton. The duty rate will be 5.8 percent ad valorem.

The dishcloths fall within textile category designation 369. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Pakistan are not subject to quota or visa requirements.

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 Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas, which is available at our Web site at www.cbp.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 John Hansen at 646-733-3043.
