RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pajama set from United Arab Emirates.

Dear Mr. Jones:

In your letter dated November 19, 2002, on behalf of your client Nitches, Inc., you requested a classification ruling for a woman’s pajama set.

The submitted sample, Style #316526SE, a woman’s pajama set consisting of a top and pants constructed from lightweight 75% cotton, 25% polyester knit fabric. The top of Style 316526S features a scoop neckline, long sleeves, embroidered designs on the front panel, and a hemmed bottom. The pull-on pants feature an elasticized waistband with a drawstring, a right rear pocket, and hemmed leg openings.

Based on the appearance of the style, it is considered sleepwear and classified in heading 6108.

We are returning your samples as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Style 316526SE, will be 6108.31.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's knit pajamas of cotton, women’s. The rate of duty will be 8.6% ad valorem.

Effective January 1, 2003, the rate of duty will remain the same.

Style 316526SE, falls within textile category designation 351. Based upon international textile trade agreements this category, from United Arab Emirates is subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

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.
