RE: The tariff classification and status under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), of ladies’ garments from Canada, Article 509.

Dear Ms. Halasz:

In your letter dated June 5, 2001, you requested a ruling on the status of ladies’ garments from Canada under the NAFTA on behalf of Vogue Dessous International Inc.

The submitted sample, Style 1560, is a seamed soft cup brassiere constructed of a 92% cotton 8% spandex knitted fabric. The brassiere features shoulder straps with a six position rear hook adjustment, a heavily elasticized one inch wide bottom band, elasticized trim at the top of the garment and an adjustable double hook and eye rear closure.

The brassiere is made of Chinese origin materials which will be cut, sewn and packed in Canada.

The applicable tariff provision for style 1560 will be 6212.10.9010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUSA), 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 cotton. The general rate of duty will be 17.2 percent ad valorem.

Each of the non-originating materials used to make the brassiere have satisfied the changes in tariff classification required under HTSUSA General Note 12(t)/62.36. The brassiere will be entitled to a Free rate of duty under the NAFTA upon compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and agreements.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 181 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 181).

This ruling letter is binding only as to the party to whom it is issued and may be relied on only by that party.

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.
