RE: The tariff classification of an overlay short set for toddlers’ wear from Lesotho

Dear Ms. Milling:

In your letter dated September 29, 2000 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 3508 consists of a pair of shorts, a pullover shirt, and a sheer garment, which cannot be worn alone, but is intended to be worn on top of the other two garments of the style. This sheer garment, manufactured from woven fabric of 100% polyester, resembling a pinafore dress, is sleeveless.

The other two garments of the style are manufactured from finely knitted fabric of 60% cotton/40% polyester. The pair of shorts is long-legged and elasticized around the waist. The shirt is short-sleeved, and buttons together at the upper back, below the round neckline.

The applicable subheading for the shorts will be 6104.62.2060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for girls’shorts, of cotton, other, shorts, girls’, other; for the shirt will be 6106.10.0030, which provides forgirls’ blouses and shirts, knitted, of cotton, girls’, other; and for the jumper-like garment will be 6211.43.0091, which provides for other garments, of man-made fibers, other. The duty rates will be 15.6, 20.2, and 16.4 per cent ad valorem, respectively.

The garments likewise fall respectively within textile category designations 348, 339, and 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Lesotho may be 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.
