RE: The tariff classification of a woman's blouse from China

Dear Ms. Brown:

In your letter dated December 15, 1994, you requested a classification ruling. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style W101 is a woman's tank-styled pullover blouse. The blouse is constructed from 100 percent woven silk fabric. The garment is sleeveless with straps measuring approxmately 1 1/4 inches at the shoulder seam and features a scoop neckline, a straight hemmed bottom and side vents.

The applicable subheading for the blouse will be 6211.49.0015, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: Other garments, women's and girls': Of other textile materials: Containing 70 percent or more by weight of silk or silk waste: Blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses, sleeveless tank styles and similar upper body garments excluded from heading 6206. The duty rate will be 7.8 percent ad valorem.

The blouse falls within textile category designation 741. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to a visa requirement 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.
