RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pullover from the Northern Marianas Islands

Dear Ms. Richardson:

In your letter dated June 11, 2004, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style 1902, is a pullover made of 100% nylon knit fabric. The fabric measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the direction in which the stitches were formed. The garment is fashioned from a rectangle of fabric which is folded over; a neck opening is hemmed over the center of the fold, sides are stitched up to create large sleeves, sleeve openings and armholes, and the center of the bottom of the fabric has a band sewn to it to create a waistband. This creates a garment with a very loose, unconstructed appearance, yet the garment does possess sleeves. Your sample will be returned as you have requested.

The applicable subheading for style 1902 will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts ---, and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers: Other, Other: Other: Other: Other: Women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 32% ad valorem.

Style 1902 falls within textile category designation 639. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Northern Marianas Islands are not subject to quota and do not require 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 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 Mike Crowley at 646-733-3049.
