RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit pullover from Vietnam

Dear Ms. Sarmiento:

In your letter dated June 8, 2004, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Norton, Inc. As requested, your sample is being returned to you.

Your sample, style 6Q6MWM/8EKMWM, is a woman’s pullover. The sleeves, the majority of the front panel and the majority of the back panel are constructed from a 100% cotton 3x2 knit fabric. The outer surface of the 3x2 rib knit fabric measures more than nine stitches per two centimeters in the horizontal direction. The mock collar, the front and the back yoke, and portions of the front and the back chest are constructed from a 100% cotton jersey knit fabric. The garment features a four-button partial opening at the neck and long sleeves.

The essential character of the pullover is given by the 3x2 rib knit fabric, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), General Rules of Interpretation (GRI), Rule 3, noted.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 16.5% ad valorem.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements this product from Vietnam is subject to quota and requires 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.
