RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s woven polyester jacket from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Lynch:

In your letter dated November 30, 1998, on behalf of your client, Susan Bristol Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

Style 2842958 is a woman’s barn style woven jacket of 100% polyester, quilted in a diamond pattern to a nonwoven batting fill, which you stated in a phone conversation is not coated for water resistance. The fully lined garment extends below the waist and features a full frontal opening secured by a right-over left five snap closures;a pointed collar;long sleeves with snap closures on the cuffs;two large patched pockets with snaps at or below the waist and a straight bottom with side vents secured by snaps.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6202.93.5011, Harmonized tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) which provides for anoraks (including ski-jackets), wind- breakers and similar articles (including padded, sleeveless jackets): of man-man fibers:other: other: other: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 28.8% ad valorem.

Style 2842958 falls within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa. As requested, the sample will be returned.

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 control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
