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

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated May 12, 2000, you requested a classification ruling. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 47-43616 is a woman’s jacket constructed from 100 percent silk woven fabric. The jacket features a lining, long hemmed sleeves, a collar and lapels, shoulder pads and a full front opening secured by two buttons beneath a placket. The jacket extends from the shoulder to the knee. You have indicated that this garment will be imported with coordinating skirts and pants.

The applicable subheading for style 47-43616 will be 6211.90.1080, 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 other textile materials: containing 70 percent or more by weight of silk or silk waste: jackets and jacket-type garments excluded from heading 6202. The duty rate will be 3.8 percent ad valorem.

Style 47-43616 falls within textile category designation 735. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are currently not subject to quota restraints or 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.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,
