Mr. Tony Leu
Precision Enterprises, Inc.

Voorhees, NJ 08043

RE: The tariff classification of narrow woven cotton fabrics, for use in the manufacture of headwear, from either Hong Kong or China.

Dear Mr. Leu:

In your letter dated February 12, 2007, you requested a classification ruling.

You submitted two representative samples, one measuring 1 15/16" wide and the other measuring 4 1/4" in width. These materials are of woven cotton construction and, according to your letter, will be imported in 25-yard lengths. According to your correspondence, this material may also be imported in 6" widths.

The applicable subheading for this material in all three widths will be 5806.31.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other narrow woven fabrics, of cotton. The duty rate will be 8.8 percent ad valorem.

This merchandise falls within textile category 229. With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise, which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries. The textile category number above applies to merchandise produced in non-WTO member-countries. Quota and visa requirements are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information on quota and visa requirements applicable to this merchandise, we suggest you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” which is available on our web site at www.cbp.gov. For current information regarding possible textile safeguard actions on goods from China and related issues, we refer you to the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel of the Department of Commerce 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 Deborah Walsh at 646-733-3044.
