RE: The tariff classification of a woman's knit jacket from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Baird:

In your letter dated June 25,1990, on behalf of Jones Apparel Group, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number 29986, is a woman's jacket constructed from a 44% polyester, 26% cotton, 30% acrylic double knit fabric. The jacket is napped on the outside and it is worn over other clothing for warmth. The jacket features long sleeves, a full front opening with a heavy duty zipper closure, shoulder pads, a hood with a drawstring closure, 2 zippered pockets, two slash pockets, an elasticized waist, and a drawcord at the bottom with metal cord stoppers.

The sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for style number 29986 will be 6102.30.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's knit jackets of man-made fibers, other. The rate of duty will be 30 percent ad valorem.

Style number 29986 falls within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Taiwan are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

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.

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

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.
