RE: The tariff classification of a scrub shirt and pants from India.

Dear Ms. Wlodarczy:

In your letter dated May 14, 1999 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted samples are a unisex scrub shirt and pants composed woven 55% cotton/45% polyester fabric. The scrub shirt features short sleeves a V neckline and a inside and outside breast pocket. The trousers have a drawstring waistband and an inside and outside pocket at the back.

The applicable subheading for the scrub shirt will be 6206.30.3040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “women’s or girls’ blouses, shirts and shirt blouses: Other: Other, Other: Women’s.” The duty rate will be 15.9% ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the scrub pants will be 6204.62.4020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Women’s or girls’ suits, ensembles, ...trousers,...breeches and shorts...: Trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts: Of cotton: Other: Other: Other, Trousers and breeches: Women’s: Other.”

The scrub shirt falls within textile category designation 341 and the pants fall within textile category designation. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India 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.

In response to other questions in your ruling request please note that labelling the item, “for hospital use” is not a U.S. requirement. In addition, the U.S. Customs Service does not give advice on complying with Indian Customs.

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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 212-637-7084.
