RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit garment from Macau.

Dear Ms. Purcell:

In your letter dated, April 10, 2003, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style A0145, is a woman’s garment, similar to a shortall, constructed from 100% cotton knit fabric. The sample features a modified u-shaped neckline, two-button adjustable shoulder straps measuring approximately 2 inches in width, oversize armholes, and an opening under each arm with a three-button closure. The garment also has two front patch pockets and hemmed leg openings.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the garment, Style A0145, will be 6114.20.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, knitted or crocheted, of cotton, other women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 10.9% ad valorem.

StyleA0145 falls within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements this category, from Macau 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.

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).
