RE: The tariff classification of women’s woven jackets from China

Dear Ms. Riggs:

In your letter dated December 14, 2001 you requested a classification ruling. The sample submitted with your request will be returned under separate cover.

Style 22180890/W is a women’s short sleeved suit-type jacket made from 100 percent cotton fabric. The garment is fully lined and is constructed eight panels sewn together lengthwise. It features a lapel collar, patch pockets below the waist, front and rear yokes and a full front opening secured by four buttons.

The applicable subheading for style 22180890/W will be 6204.32.2030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s woven suit-type jackets and blazers of cotton. The duty rate will be 9.6 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty for 2002 will be 9.5 percent ad valorem.

Style 22180890/W falls within textile category designation 335. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to quota 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 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 646-733-3051.
