RE: The tariff classification of women's garments from China

Dear Mr. Imbrogulio:

In your letter dated August 3, 1998, you requested a classification ruling.

Four samples were submitted. All four are women's garments made of 71% triacetate, 29% polyester, solid color woven fabric. The first sample, style 1TP604, is a sleeveless tank style pullover featuring shoulder straps two inches wide, no opening at the neckline, and a hemmed bottom.

The second sample, style T1046, is a blouse featuring a one button back opening, short hemmed sleeves and a hemmed bottom.

The third sample, style T1047, is a skirt which reaches the vicinity of the ankles, and features an elasticized waistband, hemmed bottom, and two side slits.

The fourth sample, style T1048, is pants featuring an elasticized waistband, hemmed cuff, and no pockets.

Your samples will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for style 1TP604 will be 6211.43.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, women's or girls', of man-made fibers, blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses, sleeveless tank styles and similar upper body garments, excluded from heading 6206.

Based upon international textile trade agree- ments, products of China are subject to quota and the requirements 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. 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 (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
