RE: The tariff classification of a knitted jacket for girls’ wear from China

Dear Ms. Chow:

In your letter dated January 17, 2002, written on behalf of Pleasant Company, you requested a classification ruling.

You state that the submitted “Angelina coat”, which is manufactured from fleece fabric of 100% polyester, will be imported as a garment lined with woven fabric of 100% polyester. This flared style, which extends below the waist, is characterized by a full-front, buttoned opening, by a shirt-type collar, by long, cuffed sleeves, and by an open pocket at the lower portion of each of the fronts.

The submitted sample is being retained for reference purposes by the U.S. Customs Service.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6102.30.2020 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for girls’carcoatsanoraksand similar articles, knitted, other than those of heading 6104, of man-made fibers, other, other, girls’. The duty rate will be 28.6 per cent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 635. 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 Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
