RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s garment similar to a tank top from China.

Dear Ms. Parker:

In your letter dated September 27, 2006, you requested a classification ruling. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

Style 357480 is a woman’s upper body garment, similar to a tank top constructed of 100% cotton rib knit fabric. The garment has shoulder straps that measure more than two but less than 3 inches, a U shaped neckline in front and back, decorative beading and a small oval opening in front below the neckline, and a plan, hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for style 357480 will be 6109.10.0070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for tank tops and similar garments, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Women’s. The rate of duty will be 16.5% 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 garment falls within textile category 339. With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries. The textile category number above applies to merchandise produced in non-WTO member-countries. Quota and visa requirements are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information on quota and visa requirements applicable to this merchandise, we suggest you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” which is available on our web site at www.cbp.gov. For current information regarding possible textile safeguard actions on goods from China and related issues, we refer you to the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel of the Department of Commerce 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 DeGaetano at 646-733-5052.
