RE: The tariff classification of a pair of women’s knit shorts from various countries.

Dear Ms. Disher:

In your letter dated July 15, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted one sample representing two styles.

Style #J900, (Selling Style), and Style #900P (Manufacturing Style), is a pair of women’s shorts constructed from either 100% cotton or 90% cotton, 10% polyester jersey knit fabric. The pull-on shorts feature an elasticized waistband, and hemmed leg openings.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Styles J900 & 900P will be 6104.62.2030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’sshorts, knitted or crocheted:Of cotton. The duty rate will be 15.3 % ad valorem.

Styles J900 & 900P, fall within textile category designation 348. 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 DeGaetano at (646) 733-3052.
