Mr. Brendan Spillane
Sable Outerwear Manufacturing Company Limited Stradavoher Business Park
Thurles, Co. Tipperary,

RE: The tariff classification of clerical clothing and other regalia from Ireland.

Dear Mr. Spillane:

In your letter dated August 23, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise to be imported consists of clerical clothing and other regalia. You have submitted brochures illustrating your full product list.

U.S. Note 1, Subchapter X, Chapter 98, HTSUSA, provides that:

The term “regalia,” as used in this subchapter, (subheadings 9810.00.15 and 9810.00.45) embraces only such insignia of rank or office, emblems or other articles as may be worn upon the person or borne in the hand during public exercises of the institution, and does not include articles of furniture or fixtures, nor regular wearing apparel, nor personal property of individuals.

The applicable subheading for the clerical clothing and other regalia will be 9810.00.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles imported for the use of an institution established solely for religious purposes: Regalia. The rate of duty will be free.

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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
