RE: The tariff classification of a women's woven maternity blouse to be manufactured in India

Dear Mr. Brauner:

In your letter dated September 25, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Texloom Group, Inc.

The submitted sample, designated style number 96128, is a women's maternity blouse manufactured from a 100% cotton woven blue denim fabric, which comprises the yoke, and a 100% cotton woven gingham fabric which comprises the gather.

The garment features a partial frontal opening secured by five plastic buttons, a U-neckline, two breast insert pockets, each with a gingham flap secured by a single plastic button, short, hemmed sleeves, one long, narrow blue denim tie extending from each side near the bottom of the yoke, which ties can be secured together to adjust the fit of the garment, numerous small embroidered flowers in a regular pattern on the gather, and a straight, hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the garment is 6206.30.3010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other women's blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses, with two or more colors in the warp and/or the filling, of cotton. The applicable rate of duty is 16.2%, ad valorem.

The garments fall within textile category designation 341. Based on international textile trade agreements, products of India are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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. 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.

The sample is being returned to you, as requested.

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.
