RE: The tariff classification of a ladies’ garment from Costa Rica.

Dear Ms. Whitehead:

In your letter dated May 10, 2001, you requested a classification ruling. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

The garment has a two ply front panel consisting of a raschel lace-like nylon/spandex fabric and a nylon/spandex net-like material extending from side seam to side seam. Additional features include an elasticized center rear seam, a substantially elasticized waistband, a lined crotch panel, and elasticized high cut leg openings.

The applicable subheading for style 6347 will be 6212.20.0020, 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: girdles and panty-girdles . . . of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 21.5 percent ad valorem.
