RE: The tariff classification of women's trousers from Korea, China or Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Denny:

In your letter dated September 30, 1997, on behalf of Lorraine Wardy Enterprises, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The garment, Style #23 GE, is a pair of women's twill pants constructed of a woven 75% rayon, 25% polyester fabric. The pants feature a fly-front opening with a button closure and five belt loops. The leg openings are hemmed. The pants also have two side pockets and one watch pocket on the front and two patch pockets on the rear. The sample submitted for Customs examination will be returned to you under separate cover.

The applicable subheading for the pants will be 6204.69.2510, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's other trousers and breeches of artificial fibers. The rate of duty will be 29.9 percent ad valorem.

The pants fall within textile category designation 648. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Korea, China and 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.
