RE: The tariff classification of women’s upper body garments from Korea

Dear Ms. Williams:

In your letter dated March 15, 2005, you requested a classification ruling.

Style 1451W consists of two women’s upper body garments each constructed from 100 percent polyester woven fabric. The sheer outer garment features ¾ length flutter sleeves and a full front wrap opening secured by a tie at the waist. The sleeves are embellished with embroidery. The inner garment features ¼ inch wide shoulder straps, a V shaped front neckline and a hemmed bottom. The top back edge is cut straight across from side seam to side seam. The garments are attached at the shoulder seams by thread loops and are easily separated without damage to either garment. As such, the garments are separately classifiable.

The applicable subheading for the outer garment will be 6206.40.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 26.9 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the inner garment will be 6211.43.0091, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers: other. The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

The outer garment falls within textile category designation 641 and the inner garment falls within textile category designation 659. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information as to whether quota and visa requirements apply to this merchandise, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” available at our web site at www.cbp.gov. In addition, you will find current information on textile import quotas, textile safeguard actions and related issues at the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel, at otexa.ita.doc.gov.
