RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s woven romper from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated December 20, 1999, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Tarrant Apparel Group. The sample that you have submitted will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 9668 is a woman’s romper constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The one-piece garment is sleeveless and features a V-neckline, self-fabric ties and a back zipper closure. The garment extends from the shoulder to just above the knee and gives the appearance of a dress from the front and shorts from the back.

The applicable subheading for style 9668 will be 6211.42.0025, 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: washsuits, sunsuits, one-piece playsuits and similar apparel. The duty rate will be 8.3 percent ad valorem.

Style 9668 falls within textile category designation 237. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong 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.
