Dear Mr. Hyland:

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

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The garment falls within textile category designation 239 in infants’ sizes and within 335 in girls’ sizes. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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 Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
