RE: The tariff classification of a shirt from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Zink:

In your letter dated July 28, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style 81142601UD, is a boy's shirt manufactured of 100 percent cotton denim material. The garment has a full frontal opening with left over right four button closure, a shirt collar, a front chest pocket on each side, long hemmed sleeves, and a straight hemmed bottom. Style 81142601UD will be imported in toddler sizes 2T to 4T.

The applicable subheading for the shirt will be, 6205.20.2060 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for men's or boys' shirts of cotton, other, other, with two or more colors in the warp and/or the filling, other, boys', other. The rate of duty will be 20.6 percent ad valorem.

As requested, your sample will be returned.

The shirt falls within textile category designation 340. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong 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.
