RE: The tariff classification of a women’s knit top to be manufactured in Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Chan:

In your letter dated November 5, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated style number 40893, is a women’s crop top manufactured from a 94% cotton, 6% spandex fine knit fabric.

This sleeveless garment, which extends to just below the bust, features elasticized shoulder straps measuring one-quarter inch in width which extend up the front of the garment and over the shoulders, where each is attached by a metal ring to adjustable elastic straps measuring one-half inch in width, capping around the top, a contrasting, embroidered flower design, in the front, and a straight, capped and elasticized bottom.

The applicable subheading for the garment is 6114.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for women’s or girls’ tops, knitted or crocheted, of cotton. The applicable rate of duty is 11.2%, ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 339. Based on international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel category 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.

The sample is being returned to you, as requested.

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.
