RE: The tariff classification of infants’ wear from China and Korea

Dear Mr. Park:

In your letter dated November 25, 2005, written on behalf of Handcraft Manufacturing Corp., you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 1JOL02B is comprised of three components. One of these components, manufactured from finely rib-knitted fabric of 100% cotton, is a short-sleeved, legless garment, that fastens together at the crotch area by means of snaps. Another of the components, manufactured from this same fabric, is a rolled-edge cap. The third component, manufactured from finely knitted fabric in chief weight of synthetic fibers, is a pair of booties.

The applicable subheading for the pair of booties will be 6111.30.5030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for babies’ garments and clothing accessories, knitted, of synthetic fibers, other, other, imported as parts of sets; and for the other two components of this style will be 6111.20.6030, HTS, which provides for babies’ garments and clothing accessories, knitted, of cotton, other, other, other, imported as parts of sets. The duty rates will be 16 and 8.1 percent ad valorem, respectively.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
