RE: The tariff classification of a blouse for infants’ wear from Sri Lanka

Dear Ms. DeAlcon:

In your letter dated February 26, 2003 you requested a classification ruling.

Style MKIG-2012, submitted in infants’ sizing, and manufactured from woven, printed fabric of 100% cotton, is a loose-fitting, A-lined styled, pullover garment, characterized by oversized armholes, by a one-button closure at the back of the scoop neckline, and ornamented by textile overlays and by a bow at each side of the garment.

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

Although you have suggested classification under HTS 6206.30.3030, since the sample which you have submitted is sized for infants’ wear, the applicable subheading for the garment will be 6209.20.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for babies’ garmentsof cotton; blouses and shirts, except those imported as parts of sets. The duty rate will be 15.1 per cent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 239. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Sri Lanka 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.
