RE: The tariff classification of a woman's jacket-like garment from China

Dear Mr. Sherman:

In your letter dated June 19, 2001, you requested a ruling on tariff classification. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 24-64396 is a woman’s upper body garment constructed from 100 percent silk woven fabric. The sheer garment is made from eight panels and features long cuffed sleeves with vents, a shawl collar and a full front opening secured by one button. This garment will also be imported in petite sizes under style number 63-64517.

The applicable subheading for style 24-64396 will be 6211.49.1080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, women’s or girls’: of other textile materials: other: containing 70 percent or more by weight of silk or silk waste, jackets and jacket-type garments excluded from 6202. The rate of duty will be 3.2 percent ad valorem.

Style 24-64396 falls within textile category designation 735. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are not currently subject to quota restraints or visa requirements.

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.
