RE: The tariff classification of a girl's top from the Dominican Republic.

Dear Mr. Kamnitz:

In your letter dated October 5, 1993, on behalf of your client Andover Togs, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style 184261, is a girl's 50% polyester, 50% cotton jersey knit top. The garment has a round neck, is sleeveless, and has a 100% woven cotton ruffle stitched at the bottom.

We also note that you have indicated in your letter that the items are of 50% polyester and 50% cotton. At the time of entry, Customs may verify the actual fiber content, of the sample, by weight. If the fiber content varies from the weight breakdown provided in your letter, the HTS classification and the textile category may differ from the information indicated.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Style 184261, will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, of man-made fibers, other, other, girls'. The rate of duty will be 34.2% ad valorem.

The Style 184261, falls within textile category designation 639. Based upon textile trade agreements, products of the Dominican Republic 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.
