RE: The tariff classification of a blouse from Indonesia.

Dear Ms. Denny:

In your letter dated October 14, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style Cascade, is a girl's woven rayon blouse.
The blouse is sleeveless, and features a five button closure, a hemmed bottom, and a v-neck ruffled collar. The ruffles extend down the front of the garment to the waist.

In a telephone conversation with you on October 25, 1993, you indicated that the blouse will be imported in sizes 6X-14.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the blouse will be 6206.40.3050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' blouses, shirts, and shirt-blouses, of man-made fibers, other, other. The rate of duty will be 28.6% ad valorem.

The blouse falls within textile category designation 641. Based upon textile trade agreements, products of Indonesia are presently subject to quota restraints and 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.
