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

Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated January 20, 1994, resubmitted on February 4, 1994, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style number 41-9700 is a woman's long sleeveless vest that extends from the shoulder to below the knee. The vest is constructed from 52% linen, 48% cotton, knit fabric. The vest features the following:
a) a V-neckline e) long side slits b) oversized armholes f) a ribbed bottom edge c) a full front opening d) a three button closure

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the vest will be 6110.90.0066, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's sweaters...(vests)...and similar articles, knitted: of other textile materials: other: vests, other than sweater vests. The rate of duty will be 6% ad valorem.

The vest falls within textile category designation 859. 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.
