RE: The tariff classification of women's jogging suits from various countries.

Dear Mr. Powell:

In your letter dated January 26, 1990, on behalf of Nicholas Import Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style 1030 is comprised of a woven polyester jacket and woven polyester trousers. Both of these garments are jersey-lined. The outershell of each of these garments is manufactured from the same color-coordinated fabric.

Basic characteristics of the jacket include a full-front, snapped opening which extends into the collar, an elasticized waistband and cuffs, and pockets.

The trousers are characterized by an elasticized waistband through which a drawstring is threaded, and by elasticized ankles above which a zipper extends vertically.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6204.23.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's ensembles of synthetic fibers, other, garments described in heading 6202. The rate of duty will be 29.5 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the trousers will be 6204.23.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's ensembles of sythetic fibers, other, trousers and breeches. The rate of duty will be 30.4 percent ad valorem.

A ruling cannot be issued for styles 1031, 1032 and 1033 since the entire suits were not submitted.
As you have requested, the sample garments are being returned.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 635, and the trousers within 648. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand are subject to quota restraints and a visa requirement, but those of Dubai are not.

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.
