RE: The tariff classification of a ladies’ garment from China, Macau or Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Balog:

In your letter dated May 27, 1999, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Classified Lingerie Inc. The submitted sample will be returned as per your request.

The provided sample, style CA0375A, is a ladies’ underwear camisole constructed of knitted translucent nylon fabric. The camisole features a u-shaped neckline, elasticized trim which comprises the adjustable shoulder straps and extends under the armholes and across the rounded back neckline, a built-in bust support, and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for style CA0375A will be 6109.90.1065, HTS, which provides for T-shirts, singlets, . . . and similar garments knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers, women's or girls': tank tops and singlets, women's. The general rate of duty will be 33 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 639. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China, Macau, and Hong Kong 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.

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 Brian Burtnik at 212-637-7083.
