RE: The tariff classification of women’s poncho-like garments from China

Dear Mr. Schoenig:

In your letter dated November 23, 2004, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Amiee Lynn Inc. The samples submitted with your request will be returned as requested.

Three styles of poncho-like upper body garments were submitted with your request, styles 23-2802, 23-2802X and 47-2802PP. All three garments are constructed of 100 percent acrylic woven fabric. The pullover garments feature an opening in the center to go over the wearer’s head. The garments have no armholes and hang loosely from the shoulders, reaching the waist and covering the elbows. The garments are constructed of lightweight fabric that does not provide protection from the elements.

The applicable subheading for styles 23-2802, 23-2802X and 47-2802PP will be 6211.43.0091, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers, other. The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

Styles 23-2802, 23-2802X and 47-2802PP fall within textile category designation 659. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.

In addition, you will find current information on textile import quotas, textile safeguard actions and related issues at the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel, at otexa.ita.doc.gov.
