RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s jumper from Bangladesh or India

Dear Mr. Perroncino:

In your letter dated December 13, 2000, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Lemon Grass Inc.

The submitted sample, style 12161691, is a woman’s jumper constructed from 55 percent cotton, 30 percent rayon and 15 percent linen woven fabric. The jumper features oversized armholes, a V-neckline, two pockets with buttoned flaps below the waist, side vents and a full front opening secured by eight buttons. There is an embroidered design on the bottom of the front panels. The garment provides insufficient coverage for wear without another outer garment.

The applicable subheading for style 12162691 will be 6211.42.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, women’s or girls’: of cotton: jumpers. The duty rate will be 8.3 percent ad valorem. Effective January 1, 2001, the rate of duty will be 8.2 percent ad valorem.

Style 12162691 falls within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Bangladesh and India are subject to quota restraints and a visa requirement.

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 Patricia Schiazzano at 212-637-7080.
