RE: The tariff classification of girls' pajama shorts sets from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Sargent:

In your letter dated January 11, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted items, style numbers 50820723, 50820724, 50820725 and 50820726 are two-piece girls' pajama shorts sets. All garments have short sleeve pullover tops and coordinated pull-on pants with elasticized covered waistbands. The garments are made of cotton jersey, interlock, or 1x1 rib fabric, weighing from 160 to 180 grams per square meter.

All the shirts have round necklines and will be finished by trim with eyelet embroidery at the necklines and lettuce edging at THE shirt bottom. You state in your letter, and in telephone conversation dated January 25, 1996, that the neckline may be finished by ribbed knit fabric.

Styles 50820723, 50820724 and 5082076 have lettuce edging at the sleeve openings. Style 50820725 has hemmed sleeves. Styles 50820723 and 508724 have ribbon bows below the neckline. Style 50820726 has an applique at the neckline.

All shorts except style 50820725 have lettuce edging at the leg openings. Style 508275 has hemmed fabric at the leg openings. All shorts have an unsecured fly front. All garments will feature Disney prints of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse on white ground fabric created by waterbased printing, in a variety of patterns and designs.

All styles will be imported in sizes 4 to 16.

The applicable subheading for the shorts sets, Styles 50820723, 50820724, 50820725, and 50820726 will be 6108.31.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' slips, petticoats, briefs, panties, nightdresses, pajamas, negligees, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, nightdress and pajamas, of cotton, girls'. The duty rate will be 8.9% ad valorem.

The shorts sets fall within textile category designation 351. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong 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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Bruce Kirschner at 212-466-5865.
