RE: The tariff classification of a women’s knit garment from China

Dear Mr. Caldwell:

In your letter dated February 22, 2006, you requested a classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of a women’s knit pullover identified by style number 6709A. Component pieces of the garment were also submitted. Your samples will be returned as you have requested.

Style 6709A is a woman’s knit pullover featuring short sleeves, a mock turtleneck and a keyhole below the collar on the front panel. The knit fabric, constructed of 85% rayon, 10% nylon and 5% spandex measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. For purposes of Statistical Note 6 to Chapter 61, the stitch count is more than 9 but equal to or less than 18 stitches per 2 centimeters measured on the outer surface of the fabric in the direction in which the stitches were formed. The front panel is knit to shape with a self start bottom and self finished sides, and full fashion marks at the armholes. The neckline has no line of demarcation for neither the collar nor the keyhole. The front panel is not considered knit to shape. The back panel is knit to shape with a self start bottom, self finished sides, and full fashion marks at the armholes. The sleeves are knit to shape with a self start bottom, self finished sides, and full fashion marks at the top of the sleeves. The knit capping for the keyhole only features self finishing on the ends but not at the top and bottom of the component. It is not considered knit to shape. All components are looped and linked to form the finished garment.

The applicable subheading for style 6709A will be 6110.30.3059, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweaters, cardigansand similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers: Other: Other: Other: Other: Other: Women’s or girls’: Other. 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/.
