RE: The tariff classification of a woman's vest from China

Dear Mr. Imbrogulio:

In your letter dated August 6, 2002, you requested a ruling on tariff classification. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style WN64246 is a woman’s vest constructed from 79 percent rayon, 20 percent linen and 1 percent spandex woven fabric. The vest features oversized arm holes, a notch collar, side vents, two pockets below the waist, a full lining and a full front opening secured by four buttons.

The applicable subheading for style WN64246 will be 6211.43.0076, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garment, women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers: vests: other. The rate of duty will be 16.2 percent ad valorem.

Style WN64246 falls within textile category designation 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are currently subject to quota restraints 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 Patricia Schiazzano at 646-733-3051.
