RE: The tariff classification of two women’s knit robes from China.

Dear Ms. Bergamini:

This ruling replaces our previous ruling F89388 issued to you on August 7, 2000. You have requested a correction to the style numbers for the submitted garments.

In your letter dated July 10, 2000, you requested a classification ruling.

Styles 039-702827 and 039-703027 are women’s robes constructed with 65% polyester/35% cotton knit fabric. Both sleeveless styles are loose fitting and features a full frontal opening secured with zipper closure; kangaroo pockets; a hood with drawstring; and a hemmed bottom, which extends to the mid-thigh area.

The applicable subheading for the robes will be 6108.92.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) which provides for women’s or girls’.bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 16.4 per cent ad valorem.

Both styles fall within textile category designation 650. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products from 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).

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 Angela De Gaetano at 212-637-7029.
