RE: The tariff classification of a woman's woven polyester teddy from China.

Dear Mr. Zelman:

In your letter dated May 23, 1990, on behalf of Craftex Creations, Inc. you requested a classification ruling. The sample is being returned to you, as requested.

The submitted sample, style 31317, is a woman's woven 100% polyester teddy. The garment features 3/4 inch wide straps of raschel knit fabric, this same fabric trims the v-neckline of the garment. In addition the garment is trimmed around the armholes, back and hi-cut leg opening with a 1/8" wide edging of raschel knit fabric. The teddy has a three snap closure at the crotch.

The applicable subheading for the style 31317 will be 6208.92.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' singlets and other undershirts, slips, petticoats, briefs, panties, nightdresses, pajamas, negligees, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles: other: of man-made fibers...other: women's. The duty rate will be 17 percent ad valorem.

Style 31317 falls within textile category designation 652. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to quota restraints and visa requirements.

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 available, 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.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

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.
