In your letter dated February 27, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a woman’s knit upper body garment. The submitted items will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted garment, style 10034JRF6, is a woman’s pullover constructed from 100 percent cotton knit fabric. The pullover has a wide, deep V shaped neckline, long sleeves with rib knit cuffs, and a rib knit bottom. The neckline is wide and deep so that the garment does not provide bust coverage.

The applicable subheading for style 10034JRF6 will be 6114.20.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other garments, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: Other. The rate of duty will be 10.8 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/.

Style 10034JRF6 falls within textile category designation 359. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
