RE: The tariff classification of a man's garment from Myanmar.

Dear Mr. Terrell:

In your letter dated February 8, 1999, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of your client, Design Resources, Inc., 8900 State Line Road, Suite 500, Leawood, KS 66201.

Style 8412 has been submitted. Style 8412 is a man's jacket constructed from 100% nylon woven fabric which is visibly coated with polyurethane on the inner shell. This jacket features a full zipper front opening with a storm placket secured by five snap closures, a hood concealed in the collar, partially elasticized cuffs with a snap tab closure and a drawstring at the waist and bottom of the garment. There are two zipper chest pockets and two zipper pockets at the waist. As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for style 8412 will be 6210.40.5020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5906 or 5907, other mens or boys garments, of man-made fibers, other, anoraks. The duty rate will be 7.4% ad valorem.

Style 8412 falls within textile category designation 634. As a product of Myanmar this merchandise is not currently subject to quota and visa requirements based upon international textile trade agreements.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since 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 Section 177 of the Customs Regulations.

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
