RE: The tariff classification of ladies' knitted tights, styles 4892G and 4812G, from Hong Kong.

Dear Sir:

In your letter dated July 11, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted garments are manufactured from jersey fabric of 95% cotton/5% spandex. There is an elasticized waistband on each. The legs of one style are full-length, and the legs of the other reach to the calf. There is a gusset in the crotch area of each style.

The applicable subheading for the garments will be 6115.19.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for tights of cotton. The rate of duty will be 17 percent ad valorem.

The tights fall within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to a visa requirement.

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.
