RE: The tariff classification of a ladies reversible jacket and ladies vest from China.

Dear Mr. Navedo:

In your letter dated May 7, 2000, on behalf of FU DA Int’l. Ltd., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Two samples were submitted with your request. Style #FC205C3 is a ladies reversible jacket composed of knit man-made fiber fabric coated with embossed polyurethane compact plastic material on one side and knit man-made fiber fleece on the second side. The garment has a stand-up collar, two pockets below the waist and a full front zippered closure on both sides. Style #F1315C3 is a ladies vest composed of the identical fabric as the reversible jacket. The sleeveless vest has a stand-up collar, two zippered pockets at the bottom and one with a hook and loop closure. There are also two large breast pockets and two smaller pockets on each side at the top. On both items the plastic material completely obscures the underlying fabric.

In reference to the reversible jacket, style #FC05C3 classification 6113 vs. 6102. As per Chapter 61 Note 8 “Garments which are, prima facie, classifiable both in heading 6113 and in other headings of this chapter, excluding heading 6111, are to be classified in heading 6113.”

There are no quota or visa requirements on this merchandise.
