RE: The tariff classification of a playsuit from Indonesia.

Dear Ms. Yamashita:

In your letter dated June 16, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style 460456 is a woven cotton shortie style playsuit. The garment snaps in the front, left over right, from the neck to the waist. The item has a rib-knit collar, elastic at the bottom of the armholes, snaps at the crotch, and a hemmed bottom.

In accordance with Chapter 61, Note 8, "garments designed for left over right closure at the front, shall be regarded as men's or boys' garments".

You state in your letter that the playsuit will be imported in sizes 2T-4T.

We are returning your samples as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the shortie, Style 460456, will be 6211.32.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments, of cotton, washsuits, sunsuits, one-piece playsuits and similar apparel for boys. The rate of duty will be 8.6% ad valorem.

The shortie falls within textile category designation 237. Based upon textile trade agreements, products of Indonesia are presently subject to quota restraint 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.
