RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s jacket from Thailand

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated December 7, 1999, received by this office on December 16, 1999, you requested a classification ruling. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 51-38777 is a woman’s jacket constructed from 97 percent rayon and 3 percent spandex woven fabric. The jacket is fully lined and features long hemmed sleeves with zippers, a collar, a zippered chest pocket, two pockets below the waist and a full front zippered opening. This garment will also be imported in petite sizes under style number 71-39991.

The applicable subheading for style 51-38777 will be 6211.43.0078, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers: jackets and jacket-type garments excluded from heading 6202. The duty rate will be 16.3 percent ad valorem.

Style 51-38777 falls within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Thailand are subject to quota restraints and a visa requirement.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web Site at WWW.CUSTOMS.USTREAS.GOV. In addition, 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 and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

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 Patricia Schiazzano at 212-637-7080.

Sincerely,

Robert B. Swierupski
Director,
