RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit skirt from India.

Dear Ms. Wallertz:

In your letter dated July 1, 2002, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style #SO3-34-035, is a woman's wrap skirt constructed from 85% polyester, l1% spandex knit openwork fabric. The skirt has a four-inch overlap and is secured at the waist by a hook and eye closure and a satin tie. The garment also has a self-finished bottom.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the skirt, Style #SO-34-035, will be 6104.53.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Women’sskirts and divided skirts: Of synthetic fibers, women’s. The duty rate will be 16.2% ad valorem.

The skirt falls within textile category designation 642. Based upon international textile trade agreements this category from India is 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 Angela De Gaetano at 646-733-3052.
