RE: The tariff classification of a woman's blouse from China - correction to K81249

Dear Mr. Hoffacker:

This letter replaces the ruling letter we sent to you under file number K81249. The purpose of this replacement letter is to correct the classification of a blouse stated to be of woven fabric. The submitted sample indicates that the garment is actually constructed from a knitted fabric. A corrected letter follows.

In your letter dated November 14, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Norton McNaughton.

Style GD3NTDF7 is a woman’s blouse constructed from 100 percent nylon knitted fabric. The blouse features long sleeves, a mandarin collar, a full front opening secured by seven buttons. The collar and front opening have satin capping and the entire garment is embellished with embroidery.

The applicable subheading for style GD3NTDF7 will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: women’s. The rate of duty will be 32 percent ad valorem.

Style GD3NTDF7 falls within textile category designation 639. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are currently subject to quota restraints 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.).

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 Patricia Schiazzano at 646-733-3051.
