RE: The tariff classification of a man's woven shirt from Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China.

Dear Ms. Johnson:

In your letter dated June 10, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style No. 34Y307-22 is a man's shirt constructed from 100 percent cotton, woven fabric. The garment features a partial front opening with a zipper closure and a hook-and-loop fastener at the neckline; a hood with a drawstring; long sleeves with plackets and buttons at the cuffs; two pockets with vertical openings and a patch pocket with a button-through flap; and a hemmed bottom with a drawstring.

As requested, your sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for the shirt will be 6205.20.2065, Harmonized Tariff System of the United States (HTS), which provides for: men's or boys' shirts: of cotton: other: other: other: other: men's. The duty rate will be 21 percent ad valorem.

This garment falls within textile category designation 340. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject only to visa requirements. Products of the People's Republic of China are subject to visa requirements 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 already been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
