RE: The tariff classification of a poncho for girls’ wear from China

Dear Ms. Chow:

In your letter dated December 8, 2003, written on behalf of Pleasant Company, you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style BGFC, manufactured from fleece fabric of 100% polyester, is an unlined, sleeveless, loosely-fitted, pullover garment to which a ribbon-tie is affixed at the center of the front of the neckline.

The submitted sample is being retained by this office for reference purposes.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6102.30.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for girls’capes, cloaksand similar articles, knitted, other than those of heading 6104, of man-made fibers, other, other, girls’. The duty rate will be 28.2 per cent ad valorem in 2004.

The garment falls within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China 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 Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
