RE: The tariff classification of a woman's shirt from India

Dear Mr. Balsiger:

In your letter dated June 11, 1996, you requested a classification ruling. The sample submitted with your request was destroyed during laboratory analysis.

Style 824-046 T Grey is a shirt which you state is constructed from 70 percent cotton and 30 percent polyester corduroy woven fabric. Our laboratory analysis indicates that the composition of the pile is 83.8 percent cotton and 16.2 percent polyester.

The shirt features long sleeves with button cuffs, a pointed collar, a full front opening secured by sin buttons and a banded waistband with adjustable tabs on the rear. The garment also has front and rear yokes and two curved, inset chest pockets.

The applicable subheading for style 824-046 T-Grey will be 6206.30.3010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: of cotton: other: other: with two or more colors in the warp and\or the filling: women's. The duty rate will be 16.2 percent ad valorem.

Style 824-046 T-Grey falls within textile category designation 341. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to quota restraints and a visa requirement.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. 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 Patricia Schiazzano at (212) 466-5866.
