RE: The tariff classification of a woman's shirt from India

Dear Mr. Held:

In your letter dated October 15, 1997, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Elegance Apparel Inc. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

The submitted garment, no style number was designated, is a shirt constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The shirt features long sleeves without cuffs, a pointed collar and a full front opening secured by a zipper. The garment also has a back yoke, a breast pocket with a flap and two side slits.

The applicable subheading for the shirt will be 6206.30.3010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: of cotton: other: other: with two or more colors in the warp and/or the filling: women's. The duty rate will be 16.1 percent ad valorem.

The shirt falls within textile category designation 341. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints.

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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Patricia Schiazzano at (212) 466-5866.
