RE: The tariff classification of a woman's romper and blouse of woven man-made fibers from the Philippines, Sri Lanka or the United Arab Emirates

Dear Ms. Smith-Ramirez:

In your letter dated October 9, 1997, you requested a classification ruling.

Style 71873 is a woman's woven 65% rayon/35% polyester romper and blouse. The solid colored sleeveless romper extends to approximately four inches above the knee and features a scoop neck; a rear full zipper closure; a self-covered belt with loops; front pockets below the waist; and hemmed leg openings. The coordinated checked blouse meets the waist and features a pointed collar; short hemmed sleeves; shoulder pads; a full frontal opening with heavy zipper closure; lined front panels; and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the blouse will be 6206.40.3010, 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, with two or more colors in the warp and/or the filling: women's. The duty rate will be 28.1 percent ad valorem. The applicable subheading for the romper will be 6211.43.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, women's or girls': of man-made fibers, washsuits, sunsuits, one-piece playsuits and similar apparel. The duty rate will be 16.7 percent ad valorem.

The blouse falls within textile category designation 641 and the romper falls within category designation 237. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of the Philippines, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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. 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 control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
