RE: The tariff classification of a women's garment from India

Dear Mr. Chugani:

In your letter dated February 21, 1991 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style A270, is a women's garment manufactured from a 100% woven cotton fabric. The garment which you refer to as a jumper extends from the neckline to slightly above the knee. The garment features a leg separation, partial side openings secured by four buttons, horizontal seam at the waist, two patch pockets on the rear and one on the upper front panel. The upper portion consists of a front and rear panel with scoop necklines which button at the shoulder and open sides almost to the waist; the lower portion consists of a pleated front. The garment lacks sufficient coverage for wear without another outer, upper garment.

The applicable subheading for style A270 will be 6211.42.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other women's garments of cotton. The duty rate will be 8.6% ad valorem.

Style A270 falls within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of India are subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints.

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.
