RE: The tariff classification of a cardigan for girls’ wear from China

Dear Mr. Armani:

In your letter dated April 7, 2006 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style JG4831, manufactured from pile fabric, mostly rib-knitted, of 100% nylon, is a long-sleeved garment, characterized by a full-front, zippered opening that extends into the collar.

Although you have suggested classification under the HTS provisions for a knit-to-shape garment, this is not possible because the stitch count of the rib-knitted fabric does not conform to the specifications of Statistical Note 6 to Chapter 61.

The submitted garment and its component parts are being retained by this office for reference purposes.

The applicable subheading for this style will be 6110.30.3059, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweatersand similar articles, knitted, of man-made fibers, other, other, other, other, other, girls’, other. The duty rate will be 32 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/.

The garment 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 Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
