RE: The tariff classification of gloves from Malaysia.

Dear Mr. Toyama:

In your letter dated January 10, 2006, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Atlas Glove/Showa Co. (U.S.A.).

Style 370 is a string-knit nylon fabric glove with a nitrile rubber dip-coating which covers the palmside and overlaps the backside fingertips and sides. You have indicated that the weight breakdown of the glove is 55% nylon fabric 45% nitrile rubber coating. The glove features an overlock stitch finish at the cuff bottom.

The applicable subheading for Style 370 will be 6116.10.5520, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber: other: without fourchettes: other: containing 50 percent or more by weight of cotton, man-made fibers or other textile fibers, or any combination thereof . . . subject to man-made fiber restraints. The duty rate will be 13.2 percent ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
