RE: The tariff classification of a woman's blouse from China.

Dear Mr. Ortiz:

In your letter dated January 3, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Allison Taylor. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 6451 is a woman’s blouse constructed from 100 percent silk woven fabric. The blouse features ¾ length sleeves with turnback cuffs, a collar, a wrap front opening secured by two inside buttons and two self-fabric ties that fasten at the waist.

The applicable subheading for style 6451 will be 6206.10.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: of silk or silk waste: other: containing 70 percent or more by weight of silk or silk waste

Style 6451 falls within textile category designation 741. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are currently not subject to quota restraints or visa requirements.

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 Patricia Schiazzano at 646-733-3051.
