RE: The tariff classification of girls' tank tops from Israel.

Dear Mr. Meighan:

In your letter dated October 16, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted samples are described as follows:

Style #75184CD441 - a girl's knit tank top. The garment is constructed of 100% cotton solid rib fabric and features tee style straps, a square neckline, a textile bow stitched to the center front of the neckline, and a hemmed bottom. The garment bottom reaches the vicinity of the waist.

Style #25797CH451 - a girl's knit tank top. The garment is constructed of 95% cotton/5% lycra yarn dyed striped jersey fabric and feature tee style straps, and a hemmed bottom. The garment bottom reaches the vicinity of the waist.

You state in your letter that Style #75184CD441 will be imported in girls' sizes 4-6X, and Style #75157AD451 will be imported in sizes 7-16.

We are returning your samples as you requested. The applicable subheading for the tops, Style #75184CD441 and Style #75157AD451, wil be 6109.10.0065, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for t-shirts, singlets, tank tops and similar garments, knitted or crocheted, of cotton, women's or girls', other, tank tops, girls'. As a product of Israel, the item is free of duty.

The tops, Style # 75184CD441 and Style #75157AD451 fall within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Israel are presently not subject to visa requirements nor 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 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 Bruce Kirschner at 212-466-5865.
