RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s romper from India

Dear Ms. Dorfman:

In your letter dated December 3, 2003, you requested a classification ruling for a woman’s romper on behalf of LTD Commodities.

The submitted sample, designated as IDX, is described as a “scooter dress.” The garment is constructed from 65 percent polyester, 35 percent cotton knit fabric. The one-piece garment is a sleeveless romper. The garment extends from the shoulders to slightly above the knees and is joined between the legs. It provides sufficient coverage for an adult to wear without additional outer garments such as a shirt or blouse. The romper consists of three main parts: the bodice, the shorts and two fabric panels sewn together at the waistline. The additional panels encircle the shorts but do not completely obscure them. The romper features a rounded neckline, a rear zipper closure; and a hemmed bottom with side slits.

The applicable subheading for the romper will be 6114.30.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other garments, knitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers: sunsuits: Women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 15 percent ad valorem. Effective January 1, 2004, the duty rate will be 14.9 percent ad valorem

The romper falls within textile category designation 237. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India 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 Angela DeGaetano at 646-733-3052.
