RE: The tariff classification of woman’s bib and brace overall from China

Dear Mr. Wang:

In your letter dated May 1, 2007, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Kerry Textile Inc. Your sample will be returned.

Submitted sample, style #C0609, is a woman’s bib and brace overall constructed from 99% cotton and 1% spandex woven denim fabric. The garment features long legs, a split front bib that rises twelve inches above the waist, adjustable shoulder straps that extend from the back and fasten onto the front and two pockets with buttoned flaps on the bib. The garment also has two front pockets with buttoned flaps below the waist, two rear patch pockets with buttoned flaps, five belt loops and a front button and zipper closure. The garment does not provide the requisite coverage for wear without another outer garment.

The applicable subheading for the style C0609 will be 6204.62.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for women’s or girls’ suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, dresses, skirts, divided skirts, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts: of cotton: other: other. The duty rate will be 8.9 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/.

Style C0609 falls within textile category 359. With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries.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 Brenda Wade at 646-733-3051.
