RE: The classification of a women's shirt from China

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated August 26, 1998, you requested a classification ruling for a women's shirt . The sample is being returned, as you requested.

Style 57-10845 is manufactured from 100% linen woven fabric. The garment extends from the neck and shoulders to approximately the hip area and features a shirt collar, a full front opening secured by five buttons, long hemmed sleeves, a rear yoke and two pockets below the waist.

The applicable subheading for style 57-10845 will be 6211.49.9050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, women's or girls: of other textile materials: other, blouses, shirts...excluded from heading 6206. The rate of duty will be 7.6 percent ad valorem.

Style 57-10845 falls within textile category designation 840. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China currently are subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints.

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 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.

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