RE: The tariff classification of women’s woven wearing apparel from Indonesia

Dear Mr. Rubinstein:

In your letter dated March 10, 1999, on behalf of Tahiti Apparel, you requested a classification ruling. The samples submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Both of the submitted samples are constructed from 100 percent rayon woven fabric and feature fringed bottom edges. Style PC 1508W is a women’s pullover garment that measures approximately 2 1/4 inches across the shoulder seam. It features oversized armholes and a scoop neckline and provides insufficient coverage for wear without another outerwear garment. Style PC 1609W is a woman’s blouse that is similar in design to a caftan but extends from the shoulders to slightly below the waist. The pullover garment is rectangular in shape and has a scoop neck opening and hidden arm openings.

The applicable subheading for style PC1508W will be 6211.43.0091, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers: other. The duty rate will be 16.5 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for style PC 1609W will be 6206.40.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 27.8 percent ad valorem.

Style PC 1508W falls within textile category designation 659 and style PC 1609W falls within textile category designation 641. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Indonesia are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web Site at WWW.CUSTOMS.USTREAS.GOV. In addition, 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 and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

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 Patricia Schiazzano at 212-637-7080.
