RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s sweater from China

Dear Ms. Julia:

In your letter dated March 5, 2004 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number F04-03-032, is a woman’s triangular poncho-style sweater. The garment is constructed from 55% ramie, 15% angora, 15% acrylic, 15% nylon, cableknit fabric and jersey knit fabric. The garment features a 2x2 rib knit fold down collar, long sleeves with 2x2 rib knit turn back cuffs, and a fringed bottom. The outer surfaces of the cableknit fabric and the jersey knit fabric measure 9 or fewer stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the sweater will be 6110.90.9042, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, knitted: of other textile materials: sweaters for women or girls: otherother. The rate of duty will be 6% ad valorem.

The sweater falls within textile category designation 845. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to quota and 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.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 Mike Crowley at 646-733-3049.
