RE: The tariff classification of babies' and girls' shirts from the Philippines

Dear Mr. Armani:

In your letter dated November 1, 1996 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style RID002, is made from a yarn dyed woven fabric which you state is 100% acrylic. The garment is a long sleeve shirt with a full front opening secured by a metal zipper. The shirt has a pointed collar and a patch pocket with a flap secured by one button on each chest front. The sleeves have a one button shirt cuff. The bottom has small side slits and is hemmed. You indicate that this item will be imported in sizes from infants' through 14.

The applicable subheading for the shirt in infants' sizes (meaning for young children of a body height not exceeding 86 centimeters) will be 6209.30.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Babies' garments and clothing accessories: Of synthetic fibers: Blouses and shirts, except those imported as parts of sets. The rate of duty will be 27.3 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the shirt in sizes 2-4T, 4-6X and 7-14 will be 6206.40.3025, HTS, which provides for Women's or girls' blouses, shirts and shirtblouses: Of man-made fibers: Other: Other: With two or more colors in the warp and/or filling: Girls': Other. The rate of duty will be 28.3 percent ad valorem.

The shirt in the babies' sizes falls within textile category designation 239 and in the other sizes within category 641. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of the Philippines are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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.

In accordance with your request your sample will be returned to you under separate cover.

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.
