The garment features a scoop neckline in front and back, one-half inch shoulder straps, an empire waist, a partial back opening with a zipper closure, and a hemmed bottom. The garment will be imported in girls= sizes 7 to 18.

Your sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the jumper will be 6211.42.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments: of cotton: jumpers. The rate of duty will be 8.4% ad valorem.

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 or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
