RE: The tariff classification of a bib for infants’ wear from Thailand

Dear Ms. Whitley:

In your letter dated August 18, 2005 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 1512180/181K6, which attaches around the neck by means of fasteners similar to the VELCRO brand, is manufactured from woven terry that is coated by compact vinyl on the one side that forms the outer surface of the bib.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the sample will be 6209.20.5050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for babies’ garments and clothing accessories, of cotton, other, other, other, other. The duty rate will be 9.3 percent ad valorem.

The bib falls within textile category designation 239. 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 Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
