RE: The tariff classification of girls' underwear from Egypt and Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Kelly

In your letter dated April 25, 1995, on behalf of Salant Corporation, you requested a classification ruling.

Style 093034, is a pair of girls' cotton flannel boxer styled shorts. The garment features a one and a half inch wide exposed elasticized waistband, a mock fly front and hemmed leg openings. Block style contrasting letters form the words JOE BOXER around the waistband.

The applicable subheading for style 093034 will be 6208.91.1020 HTS, which provides for women's or girls' singlets and other undershirts, slips, petticoats, briefs, panties, night dresses, pajamas, negligees, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles: nightdresses and pajamas: of cotton, other: girls,. The duty rate will be 8.4 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 352. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Egypt and Hong Kong are subject to 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.
