RE: The tariff classification of a lady's knitted outerwear jacket, style 5202, from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Vergona:

In your letter dated February 18, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

This 3/4 length, long-sleeved garment is manufactured from 65% polyester/35% cotton jersey. Characteristics include a full- front, zippered opening and a collar which can be snapped together. There are pockets below the waist, a drawstring threaded through the lower edge, an elasticized waistband, rib- knitted cuffs, and woven trim.

A rectangular insert of double fabric, approximately four inches by ten inches, covering the chest portion of the jacket, can be snapped to the body of the garment.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the garment, will be 6102.30.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's other auoraks...,windbreakers and similar articles, knitted... of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 30% ad valorem.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Taiwan are subject to quota restraints and a visa requirement..

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 (Restraints 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.
