RE: The tariff classification of a hat from China.

Dear Mr. Simpson:

In your letter dated August 26, 2005, on behalf of Dinteam Industries Ltd., you requested a classification ruling. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample, style 7-50030 is a man’s cap composed of a crown and peak that is woven 70% polyester/30% wool fabric. Between the peak and top and around the hat is knit 100% nylon fabric. The woven portion of the hat imparts the essential character.

The applicable subheading for style will be 6505.90.4090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Hats and other headgear, knitted or crocheted, or made up from lace, felt or other textile fabric, in the piece (but not in strips), whether or not lined or trimmed; hair-nets of any material, whether or not lined or trimmed: Not knitted: Of wool: Other, Other.” The duty rate will be 31 cents per kg +7.9% ad valorem. The textile category designation is 459.

Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information as to whether quota and visa requirements apply to this merchandise, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” available at our web site at www.cbp.gov. In addition, you will find current information on textile import quotas, textile safeguard actions and related issues at the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel, at otexa.ita.doc.gov.

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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 646-733-3053.
