RE: The tariff classification of a lady's woven rayon Fran Pant, style 528432, from Sri Lanka.

Dear Ms. Moore:

In your letter dated May 31, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The length of this garment is mid-calf. There is an apparent separation between the full legs. Other characteristics include pockets, and a waistband which buttons together at the front and is elasticized at the back.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6204.69.2510, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's other trousers and breeches of artificial fibers. The rate of duty will be 30.4% ad valorem.

The trousers fall within textile category designation 648. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Sri Lanka are subject to quota restraints and 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.
