RE: The tariff classification of a girl's wrap skirt from the Philippines.

Dear Mr. Chizmadia:

In your letter dated September 23, 1994, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style #L5139P, is a girl's cotton woven wrap skirt. The skirt panel wraps in front, from right to left and has a hook and button closure on the left side. The garment also has an elasticized rear waist, and concealed shorts with a front zippered closure, which attach to the skirt on the right side. The skirt shell fabric obscures the leg separation of the shorts.

You state in your letter that the skirt will be imported in girl's sizes 4, 6X, 7, 14, 16 and 20.

We are sorry that we will not be able to provide you with a binding ruling for sizes 16 and 20. We do suggest, however, that you submit a sample of each size to U.S. Customs, requesting a binding ruling.

The applicable subheading for the skirt, Style L5139P, will be 6204.53.3020 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girl's skirts and divided skirts, of synthetic fibers, other, other, girls'. The duty rate will be 17% ad valorem.

The skirt falls within textile category designation 642. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of the Philippines are presently 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 been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
