RE: The tariff classification of motocross pants from China.

Dear Ms. Szeto:

In your letter dated September 13, 2005, on behalf of White Bothers, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted samples, Styles SX1 and MX1, are motocross racing pants constructed of woven 95% nylon, 5% polyester fabric with a small amount of knit fabric in locations requiring extra stretch. Style SX1 features waist adjusters, a heavy duty front zipper closure, inside removable fabric hip panels, a degree of thigh and knee protection, vented rear yoke, knees and lower leg, and leather inner knee heat shields. Style MX1 features waist adjusters, a heavy duty front zipper closure, inside removable fabric hip panels, thigh protection, padded knee and lower front leg protection, vented rear yoke and knees, and carbonized fabric inner knee heat shields.

The applicable subheading for the Styles SX1 and MX1 will be 6211.33.0061, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Other garments, men’s or boys’: Of man-made fibers, Other.” The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

Styles SX1 and MX1 fall within textile category designation 659. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information as to whether quota and visa requirements apply to this merchandise, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” available at our web site at www.cbp.gov. 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.

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.
