RE: The tariff classification of a tutu from China

Dear Ms. Balice:

In your letter dated November 29, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style 71922, is a girl’s tutu, which will be made of 100 percent nylon net fabric. The tutu features two layers of the net fabric with a gathered waist, sewn into an elasticized waistband made of ribbon measuring ¾ inch on each side. Fabric flowers embellish the front which are glued to the waistband. The skirt of the tutu is approximately nine inches in length with unfinished edges.

The applicable subheading for the girl’s tutu will be 6104.53.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Women’s or girls’ suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, dresses, skirts, divided skirts, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear), knitted or crocheted: Skirts and divided skirts: Of synthetic fibers: OtherGirls’.” The rate of will be 16.5 percent ad valorem.

The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The tutu falls within textile category designation 642. Based upon international textile trade agreements, as products from China, this merchandise is 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.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).

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.
