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

Dear Mr. Cohn:

In your letter dated October 28, 1997, on behalf of your client Ann Taylor Global Sourcing Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style SU2301, is a woman's suit of 52% polyester, 48% acetate woven fabric. The suit consists of a jacket and skirt both made of identical solid color fabric. The jacket portion is fully lined and features a full frontal opening that closes right over left with four buttons, lapels and a collar, long hemmed sleeves, and two pockets below the waist with flap closures. The jacket is made with eight panels sewn together lengthwise. The skirt is lined and features a back zipper opening with a button closure at the waist.

Your sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the suit will be 6204.13.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for suits, of synthetic fibers, other, women's. The duty rate will be 36.8 cents per kilogram plus 27%.

Style SU2301 falls within textile category designation 644. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to quota and the requirements of a visa.

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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
