RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s pea coat from China

Dear Mr. Seltzer:

In your letter received in this office on February 3, 2006, on behalf of LL & S Purchasing Corporation, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 89707FFFWW, is a woman’s pea coat constructed of a shell composed of a woven 80% wool/20% Viscose fabric. The coat is lined with a woven 75% silk/25% nylon fabric.

The coat extends to the thigh area in length, is slightly fitted at the waist and has a notched lapel-style collar with a double-breasted full front opening that is secured by a right-over-left, six-button closure. The coat has long hemmed sleeves and a straight cut hemmed bottom. The garment has two front slash pockets below the waist, a self-fabric belt segment on the rear portion of the waist. The silk blend side has a left chest pocket and two pockets below the waist that are trimmed with the wool/Viscose fabric.

Although the garment has pockets on the reverse side and the front closure can be buttoned on each side, examination of the fabrication and finishing indicates that it is not suitable for wear with the silk/nylon fabric side exposed. As such, your suggested classification, 6202.99.1000, is not applicable.

The applicable subheading for the coat will be 6202.11.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for women’s overcoats, carcoats, capes, cloaks and similar coats: Of wool or fine animal hair. The duty rate will be 41¢/kg + 16.3 percent ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

This coat falls within textile category designation 435. 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 W. Raftery at 646-733-3047.
