RE: The tariff classification of infants' textile diaper covers with plastic liners from China.

Dear Ms. Williams:

This classification decision under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) is being issued in accordance with the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

DATE OF INQUIRY : May 9, 1990

ON BEHALF OF : Emval Creations Inc.

MERCHANDISE : The submitted samples, which have no style numbers, are infants' diaper covers with plastic liners. The outershell of each item is 50 percent cotton, 50 percent polyester woven. The first sample has a fully elasticized waistband and leg openings. The second item has two snap openings extending from the waist-band to each leg opening, and a fully elasti- cized waistband and leg openings. The third garment has velcro closures, an elasticized rear waistband, and capping at the waistband and leg openings. The three diaper covers will be imported in sizes S, M and L for infants 0 to 24 months.


If the outer shell is chief weight cotton:

6209.20.5050 9.9% 239
If the outer shell is chief weight synthetic:

6209.30.3040 17% 239

REQUIREMENTS : Subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements. The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, to obtain the most current information avail- able, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs
Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

OTHER : The samples will be returned as requested.

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
