RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s jumper from the Philippines

Dear Ms. Hubbard:

In your letter dated February 10, 2000, you requested a classification ruling. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 223-2997 is a woman’s jumper constructed from 97 percent polyester and 3 percent spandex woven fabric. The jumper features oversized armholes, a V-neckline, self-fabric adjustable tab in the back, two pockets with buttoned flaps and a full front opening secured by seven buttons. The jumper provides insufficient coverage for wear without another outerwear garment. This jumper will also be imported in petite and women’s sizes under style numbers 224-9701 and 225-9763.

The applicable subheading for style 223-2997 will be 6211.43.0066, 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: jumpers: other. The duty rate will be 16.4 percent ad valorem.

Style 223-2997 falls within textile category designation 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of the Philippines 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.
