RE: The tariff classification of a woman's coat from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. D'Eon:

In your letter dated June 6, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style 18813, is a 3/4 length woman's coat which extends to above the knee. It is manufactured from a knit fabric composed of 50 percent wool and 50 percent acrylic. The garment features a full frontal opening with a 3 button closure, long sleeves, patch pockets below the waist and shoulder pads attached to the inside by a VELCRO-type fastener. The sample will be returned as you requested.

At the time of entry, Customs may verify the actual fiber content of these garments. If the fiber contents vary from the weight breakdown provided in your letter, the HTS classifications may differ from the information indicated.

The applicable subheading for the submitted sample will be 6102.30.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's... carcoats... and similar articles, knitted... of man-made fibers, other, containing 23 percent or more by weight of wool or fine animal hair. The rate of duty will be 68.3 cents per kg. + 20 percent ad valorem.

Style 18813 falls within textile category designation 435. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to visa requirements.

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.
