RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit pullover from China. Correction to Ruling Number NY L89777

Dear Mr. Muhlfelder:

Recent technical changes to statistical note 6 to Chapter 61, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) necessitated reviewing and replacing NY Ruling Number L89777, dated January 25, 2006. The change impacted on “knit to shape” components, which, in the case of your garment, changed the tariff classification. A complete revised ruling follows.

In your letter dated January 10, 2006, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number F06-752A-C230, is a woman’s cardigan that is constructed from 100% acrylic knit fabric with a 10-button detachable faux fur collar. The outer surface of the garment measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the direction in which the stitches were formed. The knit to shape garment features a V-neckline, long sleeves with ribbed edge cuffs, a full front opening with 3-button closures, and a ribbed edge bottom.

The cardigan and the collar are considered as a composite good. The essential character is given by the cardigan, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), General Rules of Interpretation (GRI), Rule 3 noted.

The applicable subheading for the cardigan will be 6110.30.3057, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweatersand similar articles, knitted: of man made fibers: otherother: women’s: knit to shape articles described in statistical note 6 to this chapter. The duty rate will be 32% 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/.

The cardigan falls within textile category designation 639. 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 Camille R. Ferraro at 646-733-3049.
