RE: The tariff classification of a woman's suit-type jacket from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Muoio:

In your letter dated January 27, 1994, on behalf of Jones Apparel Group, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style number 27018 is a woman's 52% wool, 48% acrylic , knit suit-type jacket with an attached vest front. The one piece garment simulates a fully opened suit-type jacket worn over a vest that has six button closures. The jacket has more than three panels, of which two are in the front, sewn together lengthwise. The garment is tailored and features long hemmed sleeves with three button closures; a full front opening with a six button closure; a left chest pocket; two patch pockets below the waist; and a hemmed bottom.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6104.31.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's suit-type jackets, knitted: of wool or fine animal hair. The rate of duty will be 68.3 cents/kg+20% ad valorem.

The jacket 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.
