RE: The tariff classification of women’s woven upper body garments from India

Dear Ms. Mobley:

In your letter dated December 21, 1999, you requested a classification ruling. The samples that you have submitted will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style A is a woman’s upper body garment constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The garment features a drawstring V-neckline in front, a square neckline in back and shoulder straps that are approximately ¼ inch wide. The front and back panels come to a point at the center and the garment does not extend to the waist.

Style B is a woman’s upper body garment constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The garment is lined and features a V-neckline and adjustable shoulder straps that are approximately ¼ inch wide. The bottom of the front panel comes to a point. The garment fastens in the back by means of a self-fabric tie, leaving a majority of the back bare.

The applicable subheading for both styles will be 6211.42.0081, Harmonized tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, women’s or girls’: of cotton: other. The duty rate will be 8.3 percent ad valorem.

Both styles fall within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to quota restraints and a visa requirement.

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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Patricia Schiazzano at 212-637-7080.
