RE: The tariff classification of a man’s woven padded sleeveless jacket from Korea.

Dear Mr. Bounds:

In your letter dated April 25, 2000, on behalf of your client, Design Resources, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 410, is a man’s woven 100 percent nylon padded sleeveless jacket. The garment features a full front zippered opening, the zipper extending to the top of the collar. The garment is lined with a 100 percent polyester brushed knit fabric, having a polyfill batting. There are welt pockets at the waist. The shell is coated with polyurethane, however the coating is not visible, therefore HTS 6210 does not apply. The sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6201.93.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles, of man-made fibers, other, padded sleeveless jackets. The rate of duty will be 15.7 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 659. As a product of Korea this merchandise is currently subject to visa restrictions and quota restraints 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 also be verified at the time of shipment.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 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.
