RE: The tariff classification of a ”pant protector” from Canada and China.

Dear Mr. Pollari:

In your letter dated May 31, 2004 you requested a classification ruling.

The illustration and picture submitted is that of a pant protector. You state that the pant protector is made of woven synthetic fibers and straps on under the knee to the ankle with straps and buckles or a hook and loop closure. The pant protector is used on the right leg to protect the bicyclists pants from getting soiled by the oil of the bicycle chain.

The applicable subheading for the “pant protector” will be 6217.10.9530, HTS, which provides for other made up clothing accessories; parts of garments or of clothing accessories, other than those of heading 6212: Accessories: Other: Of man-made fibers. The general rate of duty will be 14.6% ad valorem. The textile category designation is 659.

Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa but products of Canada not subject to quota and the requirement of 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.
