U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the September 21, 2016 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in an increase in duties on tubular cotton knit yarn of 92% cotton and 8% elastane, measuring more than 20,000 decitex. The item had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 5607.90.9000 (6.3% duty), but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 5606.00.0010 and thus subject to an 8% duty. China is the principal supplier of this product. The final revocation and modification became effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after November 21, 2016.
