RE: The tariff classification of a sleeveless shirt from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Harrison:

In your letter dated May 12, 2000, you requested a classification ruling.

Style 96261-00VM is a 100 percent cotton sleeveless shirt. It features a full frontal opening with seven snaps, two front breast patch pockets, a curve hemmed bottom, a pointed collar and hemmed armholes with frayed material rimming the openings. Your sample will be returned as you have requested.

The applicable subheading for the shirt will be 6211.32.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, men’s or boys’, of cotton, shirts excluded from heading 6205. The duty rate will be 8.3 percent ad valorem.

Style 96261-00VM falls within textile category designation 340. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong are 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.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 Camille Ferraro at 212-637-7082.
