RE: The tariff classification of girls' apparel from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Nixon:

This classification decision under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) is being issued in accordance with the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

DATE OF INQUIRY : November 17, 1989

ON BEHALF OF : Paramount Apparel, Ltd.

MERCHANDISE : The submitted samples, styles 6000 and 7004, are girls', padded, woven outerwear jackets. The shell of each garment is 65 percent polyester, 35 percent cotton. The lining of each garment is nylon and the fill is polyester. Styles 6000 and 7004 have a detachable hood with a drawstring closure, a full front zipper opening, a textile flap covering the zipper, pockets at the waist front, and a drawstring closure at the bottom. Style 6000 will be imported in girls' sizes 4 to 6x. Style 7004 will be imported in girls' sizes 7 to 14.

You indicated in your letter that the garment will meet the water resistance standard indicated in Additional U.S. Note 2 to Chapter 62 HTS, as a result of a polyurethane coating to the lining of the body and sleeves.

If the lining of the body and sleeves has the water resistance indicated in Additional U.S. Note 2 to Chapter 62 HTS:

6000 6202.93.4500 7.6% 635
7004 6202.93.4500 7.6% 635

If the lining of the body and sleeves does not have the water resistance indicated in Additional U.S. Note to Chapter 62 HTS:

6000 6202.93.5020 29.5% 635
7004 6202.93.5020 29.5% 635

REQUIREMENTS : Subject to a visa requirement based upon international textile trade agreements. 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.

OTHER : The samples will be returned as requested.

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.
