RE: The tariff classification of women's sleepwear from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Okaya:

In your letter dated April 30, 1991, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample (designated as style numbers VSC- 914/VSC-4011) is women's sleepwear, consisting of an upper component and a panty bottom. Both components are manufactured from the same sheer, printed, woven fabric, which is composed of 100% polyester. The upper component has a gathered, ruffled bottom, and is pullover-styled.Its coverage extends from the top of the bust to approximately three inches above the midthigh. It also has spaghetti shoulder straps; a V-shaped top edge; a partial frontal opening secured by three buttons; a dropped waist; and two self-fabric bows tacked down on the (dropped) waist. The bottom component has an elasticized waistband and leg openings, and a lined crotch. The sample is being returned under separate cover.

The applicable subheading for the submitted sample will be 6208.22.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's nightdresses and pajamas of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 17 percent ad valorem.

The submitted sample falls within textile category designation 651. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to 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.
