In your letter dated June 17, 2002, you requested a classification ruling.

You submitted two styles of men’s woven fabric pants identified as style 100-605-705 and 100-610-391. These samples will be returned as you have requested.

Style 100-605-705 is a man’s woven pant made from 70 percent polyester, 15 percent rayon and 15 percent wool. The garment has two front side pockets, a zippered front fly with two buttons overlapping at the waistband, an elastic side adjuster, and two rear pockets with button closures.

Style 100-610-391 is a man’s woven pant made from 65 percent polyester, 20 percent wool, and 15 percent nylon. The garment has two front side pockets, a zippered front fly with a button at the waistband and two rear pockets wit button closures.

The applicable subheading for styles 100-605-705 and 100-610-391 will be 6203.434010, HTS, which provides for men’s or boys’ trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts, of synthetic fibers, other, other, other, other, other, trousers and breeches, men’s. The duty rate will be 28.3 percent ad valorem.

Styles 100-605-705 and 100-610-391 fall within textile category designation 647. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Dominican Republic 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 Camille R. Ferraro at 646-733-3046.
