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

Dear Ms. Monahan:

In your letter dated September 9, 2003, you requested a classification ruling for a woman’s knit tank top.

The submitted sample, Style #J11C24Y, is a woman’s racer back tank top constructed from 60% polyester, 33% cotton, and 7% spandex knit fabric. The garment extends to the waist and features a U-shaped neckline, shoulder straps measuring approximately 1½" in width, and a hemmed bottom.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the tank top, Style J11C24Y will be 6109.90.1065, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's tank tops and similar garments, knitted or crocheted, of man-made fibers, women’s, tank tops, women’s. The rate of duty will be 32.2% ad valorem.

The tank top, Style J11C24Y, falls within the textile category designation 639. Based upon international textile trade agreements, category 639 from Macau is subject to visa requirements and 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 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 Angela De Gaetano at 646-733-3052.
