RE: The tariff classification of a boys’ garment from the Dominican Republic.

Dear Ms. Disher:

In your letter dated December 13, 2001, you requested a classification ruling. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

Style T372 is a boys’ underwear singlet constructed of white 100% cotton knitted fabric. The close fitting garment features a scooped front neckline, a rounded rear neckline, oversized armholes, an overlock stitch finish at the garment bottom and capping on the shoulder straps, neckline and armholes.

The applicable subheading for Style T372 will be 6109.10.0007, HTS, which provides for T-shirts, singlets, tank tops and similar garments, knitted or crocheted: of cotton . . . men's or boys': underwear: singlets, all white, without pockets, trim or embroidery. The duty rate will be 17.8 percent ad valorem. In 2002, the duty rate will be 17.4 percent ad valorem.

Style T372 falls within textile category designation 352. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Dominican Republic are subject to 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 646-733-3054.
