RE: The tariff classification of a boy’s knit vest from China

Dear Mr. Maher:

In your letter dated August 30, 2006, on behalf of your client The Children’s Place Ser Com LLC, you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style E2612L0012 is a boy’s vest manufactured from cotton knit jersey fabric containing approximately 10 stitches per 2 centimeters measured in the direction the fabric is formed. The pullover garment has a vee neck opening and rib knit fabric at the neckline, armhole openings and waistband. While you propose classification in a Chapter 61, Statistical Note 6 provision for knit to shape articles, this is not possible because the garment being a vest, other than a sweater vest, is not classifiable in such a provision.

As you have requested, the sample garment and its accompanying component parts are being returned.

The applicable subheading for style E2612L0012 will be 6110.20.2030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for cotton vests, other than sweater vests, knitted or crocheted, men’s or boys’. The duty rate will be 16.5 per cent 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 E2612L0012 falls within textile category designation 359. 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 Bruce Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
