RE: The tariff classification of men’s sleep pants from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Weinrauch:

In your letter dated August 4, 2003, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of keys usa.

A sample identified as style 33496504 was submitted and will be returned as you have requested. You describe the garment as night pants, made from 100% woven cotton fabric. The garment features a covered elasticized waistband; a narrow tape fabric drawcord; two side seam pockets; an open fly with no means of fastening it closed; and hemmed leg openings.

The applicable subheading for style 33496504 will be 6207.91.3010., Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for men’s or boys’ singlets and other undershirts, underpants, briefs, nightshirts, pajamas, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles: other: of cotton: other: sleepwear. The duty rate will be 6.1% ad valorem.

Style 33496504 falls within textile category designation 351. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong 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 Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas, which is available at our Web site at www.cbp.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 Camille R. Ferraro at 646-733-3046.
