RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s cardigan from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Nelson:

In your letter dated March 30, 2006, you requested a classification ruling. As requested, your sample is being returned to you.

Your sample, style NR113023, is a woman’s cardigan constructed from 80% cotton, 20% polyester knit fabric. The outer surface of the garment measures more than nine stitches per two centimeters in the direction in which the stitches were formed. The garment features a mock collar, long sleeves with loose fitting rib knit cuffs, a full front zippered opening, zippered pockets, and a loose fitting rib knit bottom that does not provide a tightening at the waist. The component panels are sewn together.

In your ruling request, you recommended classification of the submitted garment under HTS 6102.20.0010. However, it is noted that style NR113023 lacks a tightening at the bottom.

The applicable subheading for style NR113023 will be 6110.20.2079, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: other: women’s: other. The duty rate will be 16.5% ad valorem.

Tariff number 6110.20.2079 falls within textile category designation 339. 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.
