RE: The tariff classification of a woman's jacket from Colombia, Costa Rica or the Dominican Republic

Dear Ms. Smith:

In your letter dated May 29, 1998, you requested a classification ruling. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 828510 is a woman's jacket constructed from 58 percent rayon, 30 percent wool and 10 percent acrylic woven fabric. The fully lined jacket features long hemmed sleeves, a collar, lapels, shoulder pads, a semi-fitted waist, two pockets below the waist and a full front opening secured by four buttons. The jacket also has two back vents.

The applicable subheading for style 828510 will be 6204.39.3010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' suits, ensembles, suit-
type jackets, blazers, dresses, skirts, divided skirts, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): suit-type jackets and blazers: of other textile materials: of artificial fibers: other: women's. The duty rate will be 28.3 percent ad valorem.

Style 828510 falls within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Colombia or the Dominican Republic are subject to a visa requirement and currently not subject to quota restraints. Presently, products of Costa Rica are not subject to either a visa requirement or to 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.
