RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s jacket from Vietnam

Dear Mr. McManus:

In your letter dated October 13, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Prominent USA LLC. The submitted sample will be returned to you as requested.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6204.33.5010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, dresses, skirts, divided skirts, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): suit-type jackets and blazers: of synthetic fibers: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 27.3 percent ad valorem.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 635. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
