RE: The tariff classification of women's jackets from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated October 31, 1997, you requested a classification ruling. The samples submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 8671P is a jacket constructed from 65 percent rayon\35 percent polyester woven fabric. The fully lined jacket features long sleeves with button cuffs, a collar, self fabric adjustable side tabs and a full front, zippered opening. The jacket also has two flapped pockets below the waist.

Style 8600W is a jacket constructed from 65 percent rayon\35 percent polyester woven fabric. The fully lined jacket features long sleeves, a collar, a full front zippered opening and two flapped pockets below the waist.

The applicable subheading for both styles will be 6211.43.0078, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garment, women's or girls': of man-made fibers: jackets and jacket-type garments excluded from heading 6202. The duty rate will be 16.7 percent ad valorem.

Both styles fall within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong are subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints.

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 Patricia Schiazzano at (212) 466 - 5866.
