RE: The tariff classification of jackets from Macau

Dear Ms. Masco:

In your letter dated March 28, 2002 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style BY47682, manufactured from fleece fabric of 75% cotton/25% polyester, is a waist-length garment for boys, characterized by a full-front, zippered opening, by a rib-knitted waistband, by a hood, by long sleeves with rib-knitted cuffs, and by an open pocket at the lower portion of each of the fronts.

Submitted style BY44640, manufactured from fleece fabric of 62% polyestser/38% cotton, is a waist-length garment, which will be manufactured for boys and for infants, the styling of which differs from the preceding style by the absence of pockets and by the addition of ornamentation at one side of the chest area.

As you have requested, the sample garments are being returned.

The applicable subheading for style BY47682 will be 6101.20.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for boys’anorakswindbreakers and similar articles, knitted, other than those of heading 6103, of cotton, boys’. The duty rate will be 16.1 per cent ad valorem.

Style BY47682 falls within textile category designation 334. Style BY44640 falls within category 239 in infants’ sizing, and within 634 in sizing for larger boys. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Macau are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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.
