RE: The tariff classification of a woman's woven lyocell blouse from Costa Rica, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic.

Dear Ms. Smith:

In your letter dated March 2, 1998, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Lansdale Manufacturing.

The submitted sample, style 822065, is a woman's woven 100% lyocell blouse that features a full frontal opening with button closures, long sleeves and side slits. The sample is being returned to you.

The applicable subheading for the blouse will be 6206.40.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated, which provides for women's or girls' blouses, shirts, and shirt-blouses: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: women's. The duty rate will be 27.9% ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 641. As a product of the Dominican Republic, this merchandise is subject to a visa requirement based upon international textile trade agreements. There are no quota or visa requirements from Costa Rica or Colombia.

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. Since 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.

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.

Area Director
