RE: The tariff classification of a ladies' blouse from China

Dear Ms. Ball:

In your letter dated June 3, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style 35075134, is a ladies' blouse constructed from 100 percent polyester lace and 100 percent woven polyester. As requested, your sample will be returned to you.

The blouse is made of the lace and the bodice is lined with the polyester fabric. The collar, front placket and the cuffs are also of the polyester fabric. The blouse has five self fabric covered buttons. One at the neck and two on each cuff. The full front opening is secured by six hidden buttons. The blouse has a straight hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the blouse will be 6206.40.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: Of man made fibers: Other: Other: Women's. The rate of duty will be 28.6 percent ad valorem.

The blouse falls within textile category designation 641. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints.

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 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.
