RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knitted dress from Mexico.

Dear Ms. Dunnihoo:

In your letter dated August 7, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, the sample will be returned to you.

Your submitted sample, Style 24046 is a 100% polyester mesh knit woman’s beach dress. The sleeveless garment features a scoop neckline, self capping around the neck and the armholes and a hemmed bottom with small side vents. The dress reaches from the wearer’s shoulders to her knees.

The applicable subheading for Style 24046 will be 6104.43.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s dresses, knitted: of synthetic fibers: other, women’s. The duty rate will be 16.3 percent ad valorem.

Style 24046 falls within textile category designation 636. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Mexico are subject to quota.

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 Mike Crowley at 212-637-7077.
