The jumper features a round neckline, oversized arm holes, and two front pockets. The jumper has a fully opened back with a six metal button closure. The five inch pleated bottom is bordered at the hem with a ribbon. Various Disney characters and words will be embroidered across the ribbon. The jumper also features an acetate lining extending from the neckline to the top of the pleats. You state the Jumper Set will be imported in girls= sizes 2T-8. The sample jumper set will be returned to you as requested.

The applicable subheading for the Girls= 100% Cotton Knit Turtleneck Top will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Other: Other: Other: Women=s or girls=.

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.
