RE: The tariff classification of swim trunks for boys’ wear from Taiwan

Dear Ms Grier:

In your letter dated August 9, 2000 you requested a classification ruling.

Both submitted garments, which are lined and elasticized around the waist, are manufactured from woven fabric of 100% nylon. There are side pockets on style S/48274, whereas there is a closed pocket at one of the sides of style S/48203, which is further characterized by a drawstring threaded through metal grommets on a textile tab, inserted into the waistband at the center of the front.

As you have requested, the sample garments are being returned.

The applicable subheading for the garments will be 6211.11.1020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for swimwearboys’, of man-made fibers, boys’. The duty rate will be 28.5 per cent ad valorem.

The swim trunks falls within textile category designation 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Taiwan 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 Kirschner at 212-637-7079.
