Proposed Modification Of A Ruling Letter Related To The Classification Of Certain Polyester Yarn
In NY N273725, CBP classified certain polyester elastomeric yarn in subheading 5402.31.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for synthetic filament yarn, not put up for retail sale, textured yarn, of nylon or other polyamides, measuring per single yarn not more than 500 decitex, multiple (folded) or cabled yarn. CBP has reviewed the decision and has determined it erred with regard to the classification of the yarn as the yarn was of polyester, and not, of nylon. As a yarn of textured polyester, the subject yarn is properly classified in subheading 5402.33.60, HTSUS, which provides for “Synthetic filament yarn (other than sewing thread), not put up for retail sale, including synthetic monofilament of less than 67 decitex: Textured yarn: Of polyesters: Multiple (folded) or cabled yarn.”
