RE: The tariff classification of “camper” wear for girls from China

Dear Ms. Murphy:

In your letter dated July 13, 2000, on behalf of Pleasant Company, Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

The “camper outfit”, which you have submitted, is comprised of four separate styles.

Style S9038, manufactured from fleece fabric of 100% polyester, is a sleevless vest, further characterized by a full-front, zippered opening which extends into the stand-up collar, by an open pocket at the lower portion of each of the fronts, and by capping, manufactured from knitted fabric of 88% nylon/12% spandex.

Style S9037, manufactured from woven fabric of 70% cotton/30% nylon, is a pair of shorts, both elasticized and adjustable by means of a tab at the waistband and at the edge of each of the legs. An open pocket, manufactured from mesh fabric of 100% polyester, is located at the lower portion of each of the legs.

Style S9035 is a triangularly shaped scarf with ties for headwear, manufactured from woven fabric of 100% cotton.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 339, the vest within 659, the shorts within 648, and the scarf within 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China 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).
