RE: The Tariff Classification of a Girls’ Cotton Woven Denim Camisole from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Monahan:

In your letter dated July 13, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style Number G14150W, is a Girls’ Woven 100% Cotton Denim Camisole. The front and back of the top are pieced, and the bottom is hemmed. This garment features a center front pocket with a printed Union Bay logo, and adjustable bungee cord straps. The back has a half zipper closure. You state the camisole will be imported in Girls’ sizes Small through Extra Large.

The applicable subheading for the Girls’ Woven Cotton Denim Camisole will be 6211.42.0054, 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: Blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses, sleeveless tank styles and similar upper body garments, excluded from heading 6206: With two or more colors in the warp and/or filling. The rate of duty will be 8.3%.

The Girls’ 100% Cotton Woven Denim Camisole falls within textile category designation 341. 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 this ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
