RE: The tariff classification of body tight from Taiwan. Correction to Ruling Number N006104

Dear Ms. Stanczak:

This replaces Ruling Number N006104, dated February 16, 2007, which contains a mistake of fact. Per our telephone conversation on April 2, 2007, you informed this office that Style T1860C is a dance bodysuit similar to Style 1818. Previously, this office found Style T1818 at www.dancewearsolutions.com and based on the information on that site, determined that that item, initially termed a dance tight, is in fact a dance bodysuit. A complete corrected ruling follows.

The item, Style T1860C Adult Capezio® Bodytight, is an adult dancing bodysuit made of knit 80% nylon supplex and 20% spandex measuring 44 decitex. It is a one-piece garment that covers the body from above the bust to the toes. It is footed, has a gusset and features removable, adjustable plastic straps.

The applicable subheading for the Style T1860C bodysuit will be 6114.30.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Other garments, knitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers: Bodysuits and bodyshirts, Of fabric containing by weight 5 percent or more of elastomeric yarn or rubber thread.” The rate of duty will be 32 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/.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
