RE: The tariff classification of` a woman’s pajama top from Singapore.

Dear Ms. Greener:

In your letter dated May 12, 2003, you requested a classification ruling for a woman’s pajama top.

The submitted sample, Style #057-0354, is a woman’s pajama top constructed from 100% cotton knit fabric. The pullover style garment features a modified U-shaped rib knit neckline, with a textile bow stitched at the center, short sleeves, and a hemmed bottom.

You have indicated that the pajama top will be sold as part of a “mix and match” sleepwear group. Based on its appearance, and the merchandising information you have provided, the garment is considered sleepwear.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the pajama top, Style 057-0354, will be 6108.91.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's knit ...pajamas and similar articles of cotton. The rate of duty will be 8.6% ad valorem.

The pajama top, Style 057-034, falls within the textile category designation 350. Based upon international textile trade agreements, category 350 from Singapore is not subject to visa requirements or 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 based on the facts presented. In the event that the facts or merchandise are modified in any way, you should bring this to the attention of Customs and you should resubmit for a new ruling in accordance with 19CFR 177.2.

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.
