RE: The tariff classification of a woman's dress and jacket-type garment from Indonesia

Dear Ms. Muoio:

In your letter dated December 8, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Halmode Apparel.

The submitted samples, designated as style 020468, consist of a woman's dress and a jacket-type garment. The dress is constructed from 100 percent rayon woven fabric; the jacket is also made from 100 percent rayon woven fabric. Both garments extend from the shoulder to below mid-calf. The pullover dress is sleeveless and features a scoop neckline and a straight hem. The jacket is unlined and features short sleeves, a full front opening secured by six fabric covered buttons, shoulder pads and a hemmed bottom. As requested, your samples will be returned to you.

The applicable subheading for the dress will be 6204.44.4010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, dresses, skirts, divided skirts, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): Dresses: Of artificial fibers: Other: Other: Women's. The rate of duty will be 17 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6211.43.0091, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other garments, women's or girls': Of man-made fibers, Jackets and jacket-type garments excluded from heading 6202. The rate of duty will be 17 percent ad valorem.

The dress falls within textile category designation 636; the jacket within category 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Indonesia are subject to a visa requirement 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 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.
