RE: The tariff classification of a divided skirt for girls’wear in toddlers’ sizes from Egypt.

Dear Mr. Gill:

In your letter dated November 23, 1999, on behalf of Viva Sportswear Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 50690812648 is manufactured from woven fabric of 100 per cent cotton. This divided skirt is created by a flap of fabric, one side of which is inserted into one of the side seams, which , by means of tying to a tab sewn into the front of the waistband, covers the leg separation of what would otherwise be a pair of shorts.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6204.52.2080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for girls’skirts and divided skirts, of cotton, other, other. The duty rate will be 8.4 per cent ad valorem.

The divided skirt falls within textile category designation 342. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Egypt 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.
