RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s shirt from China. Correction to Customs Ruling Number NY M80742

Dear Ms. Fox:

This ruling is being issued to correct Customs Ruling Number M80742, dated March 27, 2006. The ruling letter contains a mistake of fact concerning the description of the opening at the neckline. A corrected ruling for the classification portion of the original follows.

In your letter dated July 12, 2006, you requested a correction to the classification portion of a ruling for a woman’s shirt on behalf of Jones Apparel Group. The submitted sample will be returned to you, as requested.

The applicable subheading for style V256T0107 will be 6106.10.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Women’sshirtsknitted or crocheted: Of cotton. The duty rate will be 19.7% ad valorem.

Style V256T0107 falls within textile category designation 339. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
