RE: The tariff classification of a man’s jacket and trousers from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Terrell:

In your letter dated November 30, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Design Resources Incorporated. The sample will be returned as requested.

The sample, style 7502, consists of a jacket and pair of trousers which are both made of 100% nylon which is visibly coated with Hytrel. The jacket features long sleeves with velcro cuffs, a zippered frontal opening with a snapped storm flap, a hood which zips into the collar, numerous pockets and zippers at the side seams. The trousers have an elasticized waist, are fully lined, have patched pockets on the front and back and also have zippers at the ankles with velcro for additional tightening.

The applicable subheading for the garments 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%.

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.
