RE: The tariff classification of a women’s jacket from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Baron:

In your letter dated May 3, 2002, on behalf of Anne Klein, a division of Kasper for A.S.L., Ltd., you requested a classification ruling. A sample was submitted and is being returned as you requested.

The item in question, style AMS752, is a women’s jacket approximately twenty inches in length for size small. The body panels of the jacket are made from a woven 98% cotton/2% spandex denim fabric that has flock applied on the outer surface to create an imitation of corduroy. The sleeves of the jacket are made from a knit fabric of 70% acrylic/30% wool. The jacket has a pointed collar, a six-button, right over left front closure, slant pockets at the waist, pockets with button-through flaps on the chest and a banded bottom.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6202.92.2061, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other women’s anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles, of cotton. The duty rate will be 9 percent ad valorem.

This jacket falls within textile category designation 335. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong 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 W. Raftery at 646-733-3047.
