RE: The tariff classification of a man's pair of soccer shorts from Korea

Dear Mr. Sutter:

In your letter dated August 6, 1997, on behalf of Pro Player, Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 81S999, is a man's pair of upper thigh-length soccer shorts constructed of a woven double sided ripstop 100% nylon fabric which is visibly coated on the inner surface with polyurethane.

The shorts have an elasticized waistband with an inner drawcord tightening, a right rear pocket below the waist and two side seam vents at the bottom hem.

The applicable subheading for the shorts will be 6210.40.5030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906 or 5907: Other men's or boys' garments: Of man-made fibers: Other trousers, breeches and shorts. The duty rate will be 7.4 percent ad valorem.

The shorts fall within textile category designation 647. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Korea are presently subject to quota restraints and the requirement of a visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. 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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist W. Raftery at 212-466-5851.
