RE: The tariff classification of a girls' bodysuit from the Dominican Republic.

Dear Ms. Rampy:

In your letter dated August 6, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style 124000, is a girls' knit bodysuit. The suit has a raised print design on the outer surface and features a scoop neck trimmed with decorative stitching, a textile bow on the front center of the neckline, short sleeves, two snaps on the inseam, and elasticized leg openings.

We note that you have indicated in your letter that the bodysuit consists, by weight, of 50% cotton and 50% man-made fibers. At the time of entry, Customs may verify the actual fiber content, of the sample, by weight. If the fiber content varies from the weight breakdown provided in your letter, the HTS classification and the textile category may differ from the information indicated.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the bodysuit, Style 124000, will be 6114.30.2060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, knitted or crocheted, of man-made fibers, bodysuits and bodyshirts, other. The rate of duty will be 34.3% ad valorem.

The bodysuit falls within textile category designation 659. Based upon textile trade agreements, products of the Dominican Republic are presently subject to visa requirements.

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.
