Dear Ms. Rasco:

In your letter dated May 31, 2006, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Modes Corwick Inc. The submitted samples will be returned to you as requested.

We are returning your request for a ruling for styles K1812U-175, K1832U-175, K1811U-175 and K1796U-175 and any related samples, exhibits, etc., for the following:

The components that were submitted all appear to be from garments which had already been assembled and subsequently taken apart. We require components that have not been subjected to further processing and are in their original condition, exactly as taken from the knitting machines, with nothing further done to them. Please provide the components of the sample garments, in the condition as they come off the knitting machine with no waste yarns removed or any other treatment of the component pieces, such as adding a stitch to prevent unraveling.

Also, note: for purposes of the Textile Fiber Product Identification Act, “tencel” is a trademarked name for the fiber generically known as “lyocell”. The garment must be marked with the generic term for the fiber.

If you decide to resubmit your request, please include all of the material that we have returned to you and mail your request to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Customs Information Exchange, 10th Floor, One Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10119, attn: Binding Rulings Section
