RE: The tariff classification of a ladies’ garment from Sri Lanka.

Dear Mr. McKenny:

In your letter dated April 28, 2000, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Spencer Supports Canada Ltd.

Style 0177 is a waist cincher (corset) constructed of a 90% nylon 10% spandex knitted fabric which measures approximately eight inches from top to bottom. The garment features two ply front and rear panels, seven vertical stays, ten single hook and eye rear closures, and a elasticized band on the inner top and bottom of the garment which helps to keep the garment in place on the wearer.

Please note that Rule No. 6 of The Textile Fiber Products Identification Act requires the use of generic fiber names when marking textile products.

The applicable subheading for style 0177 will be 6212.30.0020, HTS, which provides for Brassieres, girdles, corsets, braces, suspenders, garters and similar articles and parts thereof, whether or not knitted or crocheted: Corsets . . . of man-made. The duty rate will be 24.1 percent ad valorem.

Style 0177 falls within textile category designation 649. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Sri Lanka are subject to 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 Brian Burtnik at 212-637-7083.
