RE: The tariff classification of women's playsuits from India

Dear Mr. Klestadt:

In your letter dated December 3, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Monique Imports, Inc.

Two samples of women's one-piece playsuits were submitted. Style 4655-536 is made of 100% cotton woven fabric. The garment is sleeveless and features a back zipper, a scoop neck and a scoop back. Style 3476-063 is made of 100% rayon woven fabric. The garment has short sleeves, a back zipper, a scoop neck, and a scoop back. Each playsuit has an extra panel of fabric attached in the right side seam which gives the look of a sarong type garment when knotted to the tie in the left side seam. The panel obscures the leg separation in the front. The short legs of both garments are hemmed.

The applicable subheading for the cotton playsuit will be 6211.42.0025, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, women's or girls': of cotton: washsuits, sunsuits, one-piece playsuits and similar apparel. The rate of duty will be 8.5 percent ad valorem. The applicable subheading for the rayon playsuit will be 6211.43.0030, HTS, which provides for other garments, women's or girls': of man-made fibers: washsuits, sunsuits, one-piece playsuits and similar apparel. The rate of duty will be 16.8 percent ad valorem.

The playsuits fall within textile category designation 237. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of India 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.

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.
