RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit garment from China.

Dear Mr. Park:

In your letter dated July 25, 2005, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Next Step North America, Inc., for a woman’s knit garment.

The submitted sample, style LH2, is constructed from 100 percent polyester knit fabric. The garment extends from the wearer’s neck to the ankles and features a zip front opening from the neck to the waist, and long sleeves with rib knit cuffs. The bottom of the garment is closed, except for two “foot holes” with rib knit cuffs, which permit the wearer to walk in the garment. The garment is not intended to be worn either outside the home, or at home for more formal occasions. Therefore, in its use and construction, it is similar to a robe or dressing gown.

The applicable subheading for style LH2 will be 6108.92.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Women’sbathrobesand similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers: Women’s. The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

Style LH2 falls within textile category designation 650. 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.

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.
