Dear Ms. Hubbard:

In your letter dated November 8, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your sample is returned as you requested.

The submitted sample, retail lot number 842-5501, is a woman’s halter top constructed of 95% cotton, 5% spandex finely knitted fabric. The garment, which reaches the waist, features a johnny collar, a straight edge back from side seam to side seam, a shelf bra of the same fabric with elastic at the edge, and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for retail lot number 842-5501 will be 6114.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: tops: women’s or girls’. The rate of duty will be 11.1%.

Your item number 842-5501 falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to 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.

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 this ruling, contact Field National Import Specialist Dolores Derer at 312/983-1304 or National Import Specialist Angela DeGaetano at 212/637-7029.
