RE: The tariff classification of a woman's blouse and skirt from India.

Dear Mr Klestadt:

In your letter dated June 10, 1991, on behalf of your client, Lila sons Corp., you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted samples consist of a loosefitting, pullover blouse and a shin-length skirt. Both garments are manufactured from printed, woven fabric, composed of 100% rayon. In a telephone conversation with this office, on June 20, 1991, you stated that your client informed you that the blouse and the skirt will each be designated with the same style number, namely: 9109. The blouse has 3/4-length, cuffless sleeves; a rounded neckline without any collar treatment; and a straight bottom with partially slit side seams. The skirt has a fully elasticized waistband, with beads attached to both ends of its tunnel drawstring.

The applicable subheading for the blouse will be 6206.40.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's cotton blouses. The rate of duty will be 28.6 percent ad valorem. The applicable subheading for the skirt will be 6204.59.3010, HTS, which provides for women's skirts and divided skirts of artificial fibers. The rate of duty will be 17 percent ad valorem.

The blouse falls within textile category designation 641, and the skirt falls within textile category designation 642. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of India are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

The designated textile and apparel categories 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.
