RE: The tariff classification of a unisex creeper from India

Dear Ms. Whitaker:

In your letter dated August 28, 2002 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted garment, manufactured from finely rib-knitted fabric of 100% cotton, is a one-piece, short-sleeved, legless, pullover garment, the shoulders of which are styled cross-over, which snaps together at the crotch.

The applicable subheading for this garment in infants’ sizes will be 6111.20.6010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for babies’ garments, knitted, of cotton, other, other, washsuits and similar apparel; and in larger sizes for toddlers will be 6114.20.0020, which provides for other garments, knitted, of cotton, bodysuits. The duty rates will be 8.2 and 10.9 per cent ad valorem, respectively.

In sizing for infants the garment falls within textile category designation 239, and in sizing for toddlers within 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India are subject to quota 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 Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
