RE: The tariff classification of coated nonwoven barrier gowns from Thailand.

Dear Mr. Green:

In your letter dated February 10, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a coated non woven barrier gown. The gown is constructed from 100 percent polypropylene material and has a polyethylene coating on its outer surface that is approximately 37 % by weight. The knee length gown features long sleeves, a full back opening and a self fabric belt. In a telephone conversation, you stated that these gowns will be used in hospitals, dines, doctor's offices to protect against fluid strike through.

The applicable subheading for the disposable gown and pullover will be 6210.10.4010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906 or 5907: Of fabrics of heading 5602 or 5603: Other, non woven disposable apparel designed for use in hospitals, clinics, laboratories or contaminated areas. The rate of duty will be 17 percent ad valorem.

Based upon international trade agreements, items classifiable in heading 6210.10.4010, HTS, are not currently subject to quota restraints or visa requirements.

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.
