RE: The tariff classification of a baby’ set from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Cantu:

In your letter dated December 5, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style 349-3000 consists of a set of three fine knit garments. You have indicated that this set will be in infants’ sizes 12 months to 24 months. The first garment is a 100% cotton short sleeve pullover shirt with an opening located on the left shoulder. The second garment is a 100% cotton sleeveless flared pullover top that reaches below the waist, and the third garment is a pair of 95% cotton and 5% spandex long leg pull-on pants

Additional U. S. Note 1 reads as follows: for the purpose of heading 6111, the term “sets” means two or more different garments of headings 6111, 6209, or 6505 imported together, or corresponding sizes and intended to be worn together by the same person. Therefore the applicable subheading for the babies’ set will be 6111.20.6020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Babies’ garments and clothing accessories, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Other: Other: Sets. The rate of duty will be 8.3 percent ad valorem.

This set falls within textile category designation 239. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong in category 239 are not 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 be verified at the time of shipment.

In accordance with your request, your samples will be returned to you separately.

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 Field National Import Specialist Susan David at (415) 782-9366 or National Import Specialist Bruce Kirschner at (212) 637-7079.
