RE: The tariff classification of ladies’ garments from the Philippines.

Dear Ms. Yau:

In your letter dated February 6, 2001, you requested a classification ruling. The provided samples will be returned as per your request.

Style 66095 is a ladies’ brassiere with 92% nylon 8% spandex knitted fabric triangle shaped cups which are covered with marabou faux feathers on the outer surface. The shoulder straps and back of the garment consist of adjustable imitation jeweled chains which are sewn to the cups.

Style 66096 is a coordinating ladies’ thong styled bikini panty constructed with 92% nylon 8% spandex knitted fabric front and back panels. Imitation jeweled chains are sewn at both sides of the garment with a hook adjustment located on the wearer’s right side. The front panel waistband is trimmed with marabou faux feathers.

Please note that Rule No. 6 of The Textile Fiber Products Identification Act requires the use of generic fiber names when marking textile products.

The applicable subheading for style 66095 will be 6212.10.9020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Brassieres, girdles, corsets, braces, suspenders, garters and similar articles and parts thereof, whether or not knitted or crocheted: Brassieres: other: other . . . of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 17.2 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for style 66096 will be 6108.22.9020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Women’s or girls’ slips, petticoats, briefs, panties, nightdresses, pajamas, negligees, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: briefs and panties: of man-made fibers: other . . . women’s. The duty rate will be 15.9 percent ad valorem.

Style 66095 falls within textile category designation 649 and style 66096 falls within textile category designation 652. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of the Philippines 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 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 Brian Burtnik at 212-637-7083.
