RE: The tariff classification of a womans knit jacket from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Bevilacqua:

In your letter dated April 6, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Leonard Feinberg, Incorporated.

Style number 20120, which you describe as a womans woven garment is, in fact, a womans jacket that is manufactured from 100 percent acrylic knitted fabric.

The jacket extends below the waist and features a full frontal opening with five button closures. The garment has a stand-up double collar; permanently attached shoulder pads; and long sleeves with rib-knit cuffs. The jacket also features two slanted front pockets and a straight, rib-knit bottom. The front of the jacket is decorated with embroidered flowers.

The submitted sample will be returned under separate cover.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6102.30.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for womens or girls overcoats, carcoats, capes, cloaks, anoraks (including ski-jackets), windbreakers, and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, other than those of heading 6104: of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 29.1 percent ad valorem.

The jacket 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.

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.
