RE: The tariff classification of women's pajama bottoms from Indonesia

Dear Ms. Greener:

In your letter dated October 7, 2002, you requested a ruling on tariff classification. The samples submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Item 045-0796 (regular) is a woman’s pajama bottom constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. The garment features an elasticized drawstring waist and long legs with a scalloped hem. This garment will also be imported in petite, tall and plus sizes under item numbers 045-0797, 045-0798 and 045-0799.

Item 045-0882 (regular) is a woman’s pajama bottom constructed from 100 percent cotton woven fabric. This garment is identical in styling to the above but with short legs. This item will also be imported in petite, tall and plus sizes under item numbers 045-0883, 045-0884 and 045-0885.

The applicable subheading for both garments will be 6208.91.3010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ singlets and other undershirts, slips, petticoats, briefs, panties, nightdresses, pajamas, negligees, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles: other: of cotton: other; women’s. The rate of duty will be 11.3 percent ad valorem.

Both garments fall within textile category designation 352. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Indonesia 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.
