RE: The tariff classification of a pair of women’s pants from Thailand – correction to ruling I88197.

Dear Mr. Griffith:

This letter replaces the ruling letter we sent to you March 12th, under file number NY I88197. The purpose of this replacement letter is to correct a clerical error. The classification, and category number shown on page #1 was incorrect. The errors have now been corrected.

Dear Mr. Griffith:

In your letter dated October 31, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style #BPR, is a pair of women’s wrap pants constructed from 100% rayon woven fabric. The wrap pants features two panels of fabric with ties at the front and back waist, and hemmed leg openings.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Style BPR (wrap pants), will be 6204.69.2510, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s trousers, of other textile materials, of artificial fibers, trousers and breeches and shorts, other, trousers and breeches, women’s. The rate of duty will be 29% ad valorem.

Style BPR falls within textile category designation 648. Based upon international textile trade agreements this category, from Thailand is presently subject to quota restraints and visa requirements. 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.
