RE: The tariff classification of a woman's jacket from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Johnson:

In your letter dated April 20, 2000, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number S709006, is a woman's jean-style blue denim jacket that is constructed of a shell which is composed of a woven 96% cotton/4% lycra fabric.

The jacket is slightly fitted at the waist and has a pointed collar and a full front opening that is secured by six right-over-left button closures. The garment also has two chest pockets that are secured by flaps with a one button closure, long sleeves with a one button closure on the cuffs and a banded bottom hem that has a tab with a button closure on each side of the rear waistband. The "Sergio Valente" tradename and logo is featured on each button. A textile label on the left chest pocket features the "Sergio" tradename and a metal decal of a steer's head on the left side above the waistband features the "Sergio" logo.

The sample is being returned to you as you have requested.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6202.92.2061, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other women's anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles, of cotton . The duty rate will be 9.1 percent ad valorem.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 335. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong are presently subject to quota restraints and the requirement of a visa.

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 garment may be subject to an ITC exclusion order dealing with faded denim garments produced by an acid wash method. For further information on admissibility please contact your local Customs office prior to importation of the goods. This ruling applies to the classification of the merchandise and not to its admissibility under the terms of the exclusion order.

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 W. Raftery at 212-637-7076.
