RE: The tariff classification of boys’ wear from Sri Lanka

Dear Ms. Masco:

In your letter dated May 16, 2002 you requested a classification ruling.

This ruling pertains only to the submitted size Medium 5/6 of the style BY47944, which is comprised of two garments, each of which is manufactured from an outershell of woven fabric of 100% nylon, lined by jersey fabric of 100% cotton.

One of these garments is a loose-fitting pair of trousers, elasticized around the waistband. The other of these garments is a jacket, characterized by a full-front, zippered opening, by a hood, by partially elasticized cuffs of long sleeves, by a zippered pocket at the lower portion of each of the fronts, by a grommet at each of the underarms, and styled by a horizontal pleat across the center of the back of the garment

As you have requested the sample style is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6201.93.3521, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for boys’anorakswindbreakers and similar articles, other than those of heading 6203, of man-made fibers, other, other, other, other, boys’; and for the trousers will be 6203.43.4020, which provides for boys’trousers, of synthetic fibers, other, other, other, other, other, trousers, boys’, other. The duty rates will be 28.1 and 28.3 per cent ad valorem, respectively.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 634 and the trousers within 647. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Sri Lanka 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.
