RE: The tariff classification of a wetsuit from China.

Dear Mr. Nolette:

In your letter dated July 12, 1999, on behalf of Adventure Sports, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Men’s large 5000 Series, long-sleeve Eclipse is a wetsuit constructed of knitted rubberized nylon fabric having an outer surface coated with rubber material that completely obscures the underlying fabric. It also has a titanium coating which provides 20% more warmth for maximum heat retention. The garment has long legs and there is no front or back closure. The wetsuit is used for windsurfing.

The applicable subheading for the Men’s large 5000 Series, long sleeve Eclipse will be 6113.00.1012, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Garments, made up of knitted or crocheted fabrics of heading 5903, 5906 or 5907 having an outer surface impregnated, coated, covered, or laminated with rubber or plastics material which completely obscures the underlying fabric, Other. “ The duty rate will be 5.7% ad valorem.

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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 212-637-7084.
