RE: The tariff classification of an outerwear jacket for boys’ wear from Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Ethiopia, and Vietnam

Dear Ms. Smith:

In your letter dated April 1, 2002 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 5752HI is a lined garment, characterized by a full-front, snapped opening, by a rib-knitted, stand-up collar, by rib-knitted cuffs of long sleeves, by a mostly rib-knitted waistband, and by an open pocket at the lower portion of each of the fronts. You state that the woven fabric of 100% nylon, which forms the outershell of the garment, has been coated with water resistant PU.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

If this garment passes the water resistance test specified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), Chapter 62 U.S. Note 2, then applicable tariff subheading for it will be 6201.93.3000 , which provides for other boys’ anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles of man-made fibers, water resistant. If the garment does not pass this test, then the applicable HTS subheading for it will be 6201.93.3521, which provides for other boys’ anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles of man-made fibers. The duty rates will be 7.2 and 28.1 per cent ad valorem, respectively.

In either case the garment falls within textile category designation 634. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of any of the above mentioned countries of origin 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.
