RE: The tariff classification of Chef’s Coat from China.

Dear Mr. Pey:

In your letter dated June 18, 2003, on behalf of J.W.E. Silk, Inc., you requested a classification ruling. As requested, the sample will be returned to you.

Your submitted sample, is an uni-sex Chef’s Coat made of a 100% cotton woven fabric. The double breasted garment features a double row of five buttons that close left over right or right over left, a mandarin collar, long sleeves with fold up cuffs, a pocket on the left chest and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the Chef’s Coat will be 6206.30.3040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: of cotton: other: other, other: women’s. The duty rate will be 15.5 percent ad valorem.

The Chef’s Coat falls within textile category designation 341. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China 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 Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas, which is available at our Web site at www.cbp.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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 646-733-3053.
