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

Dear Ms. Weinberg:

In your letter dated May 10, 2001, on behalf of Bernard Chaus, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style 5000-2, is a woman’s jacket constructed from 75% cotton/22% polyester/3% spandex knit fabric. The garment features a round ribbed knit neck, a full frontal opening with zipper closure, long sleeves with ribbed knit cuffs, side seam pockets, and a ribbed knit bottom.

Your sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6102.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s knit jackets of cotton. The rate of duty will be 16.2% ad valorem.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 335. As a product of Macau, this merchandise is subject to a visa requirement 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 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 this ruling, please contact Field National Import Specialist Donna Gillespie at (562) 624-9377 or National Import Specialist Mike Crowley at (212) 637-7077.
