RE: The tariff classification of a man's coated jacket from either China or Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated January 29, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Marshall Gobuty International, Incorporated. This letter is a correction of the original ruling letter dated March 5, 1998, issued in response to your request of January 29, 1998.

The submitted sample, style number 2526, is a man's reversible padded jacket. One side of the jacket is constructed from a solid-colored 100 percent nylon woven fabric that has been coated on the outer surface with polyvinyl chloride. The coating completely obscures the underlying fabric. The other side of the jacket is constructed from a multi-colored 100 percent nylon woven fabric.

The jacket extends to the hip and features a full frontal opening that is secured by four snap closures. The jacket has long sleeves and a permanently attached hood with a drawstring tightening.

The submitted sample will be returned under separate cover.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6210.40.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906, or 5907: Other men's or boys' garments: of man-made fibers: having an outer surface impregnated, coated, covered, or laminated with rubber or plastics material which completely obscures the underlying fabric. The rate of duty will be 6.1 percent ad valorem.

As products of either China or Hong Kong, the garment is neither subject to quota nor the requirement of a visa.

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.
