RE: The tariff classification of a 100% polyester unbleached weft knit fabric of double knit construction from Turkey.

Dear Mr. Ponthieux:

In your letter dated September 06, 2007, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated as style DJ100-1572.0, is an unbleached weft knit fabric of double knit construction that is composed of 100% polyester. It is characterized by a jacquard knit design featuring a stylized floral motif. During the knitting process polyester filament yarns have been inserted between the layers of knit stitches to increase the fabric’s bulk and provide this product with a spongy consistency. Weighing approximately 181 g/m2, this fabric will be imported in 229 centimeter widths. Your correspondence indicates that this item will be used as mattress ticking.

The applicable subheading for the double knit fabric designated as style DJ100-1572.0, will be 6006.31.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other knitted or crocheted fabrics, of synthetic fibers, unbleached or bleached, of double knit or interlock construction, of polyester. The duty rate will be 10 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/.

This fabric falls within textile category 222. With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries. 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 Alan Tytelman at 646-733-3045.
