RE: The tariff classification of womens tank tops and a pullover from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Ortiz:

In your letter dated August 21, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Crystal Kobe Ltd.

The submitted samples, styles P34693, P33694 and P34753, are womens upper body garments, which are manufactured from 100% cotton fine knit fabric. Style P34693 is a womens sleeveless pullover style garment, which features a V neckline, under 2 inch wide shoulder straps and a back neckline which does not fall below the nape of the neck.

Styles P34753 and P33694 are womens tank tops; both garments feature square necklines and under two inch wide shoulder straps.

As requested, your samples will be returned to you.

The applicable subheading for the pullover will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for womens cotton sweaters and similar garments. The rate of duty will be 19%.

The applicable subheading for the tank tops will be 6109.10.0060, (HTS), which provides for womens cotton tank tops.

All three styles fall within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. 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.
