RE: The tariff classification of girls’ sleepwear sets from Israel

Dear Ms. Fu:

In your letter dated July 16, 2003, written on behalf of Harkham Industries Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 1KSU345 is comprised of three pieces, each of which is manufactured from the same finely knitted, printed fabric of 100% polyester. One of the pieces is a pair of panties, elasticized around the waistband. Another of the pieces is a loosely-fitted pair of trousers, fully elasticized around the waistband. The third piece is a loosely-fitted, short-sleeved, scoop-necked pullover.

Submitted style 1LK679N is comprised of two pieces. One of these pieces is a loosely-fitted pair of trousers, fully elasticized around the waistband, and manufactured from woven fabric of 100% polyester. The other piece is a loosely-fitted, long-sleeved pullover, manufactured from finely rib-knitted fabric of 100% polyester.

As you have requested, the sample styles are being returned.

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.

Nightwear for children in sizes 0-14 is subject to the flammability standards of the Consumer Products Safety Commission, (CPSC). Please contact the CPSC regarding compliance.
