RE: The tariff classification of trousers and shorts for girls’ wear from Hong Kong, Macau, Cambodia, and Thailand

Dear Ms. Johnson:

In your letter dated October 12, 1999 you requested a classification ruling.

All of the four submitted samples, styles G813015, G33H001, G805000, G53H020, and the sketched sample of style G33H015, will be manufactured from woven fabric of 100% cotton, and will be imported with a belt, manufactured from woven fabric of 100% polypropylene, looped through the waistband and fastened by means of a plastic buckle..

Style G53H020 is a pair of short pants, commonly known as “clam diggers”. The other styles are shorts. The waistband on all of the styles fastens together by means of a metal snap above the zippered, front opening.

As you have requested, the four submitted samples are being returned.

The applicable subheading for the pants will be 6204.62.4050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for girls’ trousersof cotton, other, other, other, trousers, girls’, other, other; and for the shorts will be 6204.62.4065, which provides for girls’shorts, of cotton, other, other, other, shorts, girls’, other. The duty rate for both will be 17.2 per cent ad valorem..

The pants and the shorts fall within textile category designation 348. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong, Macau, Cambodia, and Thailand are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. 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.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).

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 Kirschner at 212-637-7079.
