RE: The tariff classification of women’s knit coats from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. DiLapi:

In your letter dated March 23, 2000, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of 525 Made in America.

Style number 0789 is a woman’s coat constructed from a 100% cotton knit fabric. The garment is mid-thigh in length and has a full-front opening. There is a self-fabric tie belt at the waist. Other features include shoulder pads, long sleeves and a self-fabric scarf at the neck which attaches by means of three button closures. The scarf measures 8 inches by 56 inches. Style number 0844 is a woman’s coat constructed from a 55% ramie/45% cotton knit fabric. The garment, which is below the knee in length, is composed of square patches knitted together. The coat has a full-front opening with three hook and eye closures. Other features include long sleeves and a collar. The samples are being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for style number 0789 will be 6102.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States(HTSUS), which provides for women’s knitted coats of cotton. The duty rate will be 16.3% ad valorem. The applicable subheading for style number 0844 will be 6102.90.9030, HTSUS, which provides for women’s knitted coats of other textile materials. The duty rate will be 5.9% ad valorem.

Style number 0789 falls within textile category designation 335. Style number 0844 falls within textile category designation 835. As products of Hong Kong, this merchandise is subject to quota and export licensing requirements based upon international textile trade agreements.

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.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 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 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.
