RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s dress and jumper from China and Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Girvin:

In your letter dated September 30, 1999, you requested a classification ruling. The samples submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

The jumper features a straight neckline, ¼ inch wide shoulder straps, one pocket on the bodice, one side seam pocket and a back zipper closure.

The jumper leaves the back bare except for six inches above the waist thereby providing insufficient coverage for wear without another outerwear garment. This garment will be imported in regular, petite and tall sizes under item numbers 017-0667, 017-0669 and 017-0670.

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).
