RE: The tariff classification of women’s blouses from China

Dear Ms. Dorn:

In your letter dated February 11, 2008, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Meryl Diamond Ltd. Your samples will be returned as requested.

Submitted sample, style #MDL001, is a woman’s blouse constructed from 100% polyester woven fabric. The pullover blouse is collarless and features short sleeves with ruffles, a scoop neckline, a partial front opening secured by four buttons, an elasticized waist and a ruffled bottom.

Submitted sample, style #NY7848, is a woman’s blouse constructed from 100% polyester woven fabric. The pullover blouse is collarless and features a v-neckline, ¾ length sleeves with self-fabric ties and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the styles MDL001 and NY7848 will be 6206.40.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for women’s or girls’ blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 26.9 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/.

Both styles fall within textile category 641. With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries.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).
