RE: The tariff classification of a woman's lace blouse from Hong Kong or China.

Dear Ms. Dairo:

In your letter dated June 22, 1998, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Federated Merchandise Group.

The submitted sample, style 811314, is a woman's Raschel lace blouse made from 60% rayon, 40% nylon lace. It is lined with 100% woven polyester and features a V-neck, a back zipper opening, beading and is sleeveless. The sample is being returned to you as requested.

The applicable subheading for the shirt will be 6106.20.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated, which provides for women's or girls' blouses and shirts, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: women's. The duty rate will be 33.6% ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 639. As a product of Hong Kong or China, this merchandise is subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements.

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
