Dear Ms. Julia:

In your letter dated August 24, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a woman’s knit nightdress. The submitted item will be returned to you as requested.

Style S07-57-001 is a woman’s nightdress constructed from 95 percent cotton, 5 percent spandex fabric. The mid-thigh length nightdress has ¼ inch partially elasticized, adjustable shoulder straps, embroidery decorating the bust area, and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the nightdress will be 6108.31.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Women’snightdresses knitted or crocheted: Of cotton. The rate of duty will be 8.5 percent ad valorem.

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/.

The nightdress falls within textile category 351. With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries.
