RE: The tariff classification of a skirt from India.

Dear Mr. Mele:

In your letter dated July 27, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style 017-202294, is a girls' 100% polyester woven divided skirt. The skirt wraps, in front, from right to left, and has a 65% rayon, 35% cotton woven voile lining. It also has three buttons on the left front waistband, a partial elasticized rear waistband, a pleated front, and a hemmed bottom. You state in your letter that the skirt will be imported for girls' sizes XS-XXL. We assume, for the purposes of classifica- tion, that the numerical size equivalent is sizes 2-14.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the skirt, Style 017-202294, will be 6204.53.3020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' skirts and divided skirts, of synthetic fibers, other, other, girls'. The rate of duty will be 17% ad valorem.

The skirt falls within textile category designation 642. Based upon textile trade agreements, products of India are presently subject to quota restraints 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.
