RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s bathrobe from Turkey

Dear Mr. Paisley:

In your letter dated November 15, 2000, you requested a classification ruling. This letter replaces NYG84379 issued to you on December 18, 2000, which contained an error concerning the quota and visa status of category 650 from Turkey. That error has been corrected in the text below.

The submitted sample, which you describe as Ladies’ Bathrobe, is a woman’s bathrobe that has an outer shell constructed from 100 percent polyester woven fabric and an inner shell constructed from 100 percent cotton terry woven fabric. The robe features long sleeves, a shawl collar, belt loops and a full front opening.

The applicable subheading for the robe will be 6208.92.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ singlets and other undershirts, slips, petticoats, briefs, panties, nightdresses, pajamas, negligees, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles: other: of man-made fibers: bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles: women’s. The duty rate will be 16.3 percent ad valorem.

The robe falls within textile category designation 650. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Turkey are not 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.
