RE: The tariff classification of a woman's suit-type jacket from Costa Rica, Columbia or Dominican Republic

Dear Ms. Smith:

In your letter dated October 15, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The garment, Style 864919, is a woman's double-breasted suit-type jacket, which is composed of a woven 60% rayon, 40% nylon fabric. It does not reach the mid-thigh. The jacket's solid colored outershell consists of six panels (two front, two rear and two side) sewn together lengthwise. The jacket features long, straight hemmed sleeves with three sewn-in buttons on each sleeve; a full lining; a full frontal opening secured by four of the six buttons on the front; a notched collar; lapels; two flapped welt pockets below the waist and one welt pocket set in on the left side of the chest; shoulder pads inserted between the shell and lining and a hemmed bottom. The sample submitted for Customs examination will be returned to you under separate cover.

The applicable subheading for the suit-type jacket will be 6204.39.3010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's suit-type jackets and blazers: of other textile materials: of artificial fibers: other. The rate of duty will be 28.5 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Columbia and the Dominican Republic are subject to quota 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.
