Describe good in sufficient detail that anyone could classify it down to the ten?digit level.

The pullover swing top is made of 60 percent cotton and 40 percent polyester knit fabric above the waist and features a rib knit neck, long sleeves with rib knit cuffs, and a bodice. An abbreviated gathered skirt, made of 100 percent cotton woven flannel, is sewn to the waist. The pull-on pants are made of 100 percent cotton knit interlock fabric. The pants feature an elasticized waist and long hemmed leg openings. The pant set will be imported in infant sizes’ 12 to 24 months.

Provide pertinent data:
The top and pants fall within textile category designation 239. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of the Philippines are not 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.
