RE: The tariff classification of a girl's padded outerwear jacket from Korea.

Dear Ms. Vergona:

This classification decision under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) is being issued in accordance with the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

DATE OF INQUIRY : May 9, 1990

ON BEHALF OF : Outerbound By H.M.S. Inc.

MERCHANDISE : The submitted sample, style 7100, is a girl's, woven, padded outerwear jacket.
The shell and lining are nylon. The fill is polyester. The garment has a full front zipper opening, long sleeves, piping, and an elasticized waistband. The item will be imported in girls' sizes 7 to 14.

You state in your letter that style 7100 will meet the water resistance standard indicated in Additional U.S. Note 2 to
Chapter 62 HTS, as a result of a polyurethane coating to the back of the outer shell.


If the shell has the water resistance indicated in Additional U.S.Note 2 to
Chapter 62 HTS:

635 6202.93.4500 7.6%

If the shell does not have the water resistance indicated in Additional U.S.
Note 2 to Chapter 62 HTS:

635 6202.93.5020 29.5%

REQUIREMENTS : Subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements. The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, to obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs
Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

OTHER : The sample will be returned as requested.

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
