RE: The tariff classification of a women's woven upper body garment to be manufactured in China

Dear Mr. Kwok:

In your letter dated October 14, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Kazu Apparel Group, Inc., of New York, New York.

The submitted sample, designated style number PL-5590, is a women's sleeveless upper body garment manufactured from a 65% cotton, 35% rayon woven fabric.

This sleeveless garment features a full frontal opening secured by four fabric-covered buttons, a notched collar, a V-neckline, a full lining of an unspecified woven fabric, two welt pockets below the waist, and a straight, hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the garment is 6211.42.0056, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for other women's or girls' blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses, sleeveless tank styles and similar upper body garments, excluded from heading 6206, of cotton. The applicable rate of duty is 8.4%, ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 341. Based on international textile trade agreements, products of China 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.

The sample is being returned to you, as requested.

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.
