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

Dear Mr. Makalou:

In your letter dated February 25, 2002, you requested a ruling on tariff classification. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 10-71347 (missy) is a woman’s dress constructed from 71 percent triacetate, 28 percent polyester and 1 percent rayon woven fabric. The dress features long sleeves, a collar and lapels, a full lining, shoulder pads, two-buttoned side tabs and a full front double-breasted opening secured by five of ten buttons. This garment will also be imported in petite sizes under style number 64-77743.

The applicable subheading for style 10-71347 will be 6204.44.4010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, dresses, skirts, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): dresses: of artificial fibers: other: other: women’s. The rate of duty will be 16.2 percent ad valorem.

Style 10-71347 falls within textile category designation 636. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are currently subject to quota restraints and 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 Patricia Schiazzano at 646-733-3051.
