RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit tank top from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Ellefson:

In your letter dated May 22, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style #8252, is a woman’s tank top that is manufactured from knit fabric composed of 100 percent cotton. The tank top reaches to the waist of the wearer and is sleeveless. The garment features armholes and permanently attached shoulder straps that are less than two inches in width. The garment also features a neckline with a drop below the nape of the neck and a straight hemmed bottom.

The submitted sample will be returned under separate cover.

The applicable subheading for the tank top will be 6109.10.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for t-shirts, singlets, tank tops and similar garments, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: women’s or girls’: other: tank tops: women’s. The rate of duty will be 18.3 percent ad valorem.

The tank top falls within textile category designation 339. 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 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 that 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.

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.
