RE: The tariff classification of a woman's woven blouse from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Walters:

In your letter dated July 12, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number 8610, which you describe as a "short-waisted jacket", is a woman's overblouse-style blouse. The garment is not designed for wear over other outer garments. It is cut and sewn from 100% linen, woven fabric, and features long sleeves with single-button cuffs; a full, frontal opening secured by six buttons; a contrast-colored, pointed collar; front and shoulder yokes; and two patch pockets, with button-through flaps, located on the chest. The garment also features two double-besom pockets, located below the waist, on the front, with contrast-colored edges; and a two-inch-wide, non-elasticized waistband, on which are located two, non-adjustable, button-through tabs.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6211.49.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, women's or girls': of other textile materials, other: blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses excluded from heading 6206. The rate of duty will be 7.8 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 840. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to a visa requirement.
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 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 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.
