RE: The tariff classification of women’s dresses from China.

Dear Mr. Henry:

In your letter dated November 27, 2006, you requested a classification ruling. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The submitted sample, style number L526700 is a woman’s one-piece dress that is constructed from knit and woven fabric. The upper portion of the dress, extending to below the bust area and including the ¾ length sleeves, is constructed from 100% polyester woven fabric and the balance of the lower portion of the dress extending to the knee is constructed of 95% polyester and 5% spandex knitted jersey fabric. The upper woven fabric portion is a V-neck wrap style with a collar and cuffed sleeves with a button. The dress has a knit self-fabric sash sewn at either side seam which wraps around the dress at the waist.

The essential character of style L526700 is given by the bottom knit portion; Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), General Rules of Interpretation (GRI), Rule 3, noted.

The applicable subheading for style L526700, will be 6104.43.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for women’s dresses, knitted: of synthetic fibers: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 16% 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/.

Styles L526700 falls within textile category 636. With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries.
