RE: The tariff classification of a girl’s top from Hong Kong

Dear Ms.Ericta:

In your letter dated December 8, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client, J. Crew Group, Inc.

Style 47073 is a crocheted halter top. You have indicated that it is made from 55% ramie and 45% cotton. This top reaches below the waist in the front. The front neckline is cut straight across. Narrow straps extend upward from this neckline and are fastened to each other at the back of the neck. The upper back area is bare and the back neckline is straight across from side seam to side seam. The back has a full opening except for a narrow strip of covered elastic joining the two back panels at the top of the neckline. The area below this strip remains open. You have not shown any size range beyond that of “girl’s”.

The applicable subheading for Style 47073 will be 6114.90.9010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other garments, knitted or crocheted: Of other textile materials: Other: Tops. The rate of duty will be 5.8 percent ad valorem.

This garment falls within textile category designation 838. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong 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 be verified at the time of shipment.

In accordance with your request, your sample 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.
