RE: The tariff classification of women’s jackets from Turkey. Correction to Ruling Number M83391

Dear Mr. Andrews:

This replaces Ruling Number M83391, dated May 12, 2006. In your letter dated June 8, 2006, you requested a fiber content correction be made for style 63-4559. The fiber content should be 76% viscose (rayon), 14% linen and 10% wool. A complete corrected ruling follows.

In your letter dated April 14, 2006, and follow-up telephone conversation of May 10, 2006, you requested a classification ruling. The sample you previously submitted has been returned.

Style 63-4559 is a women’s jacket made from woven fabric of 76% viscose (rayon), 14% linen and 10% wool fibers. The lightweight garment extends from the shoulders to below mid-thigh and features long sleeves, a collar and two slash pockets at the waist. The garment closes at the front by means of an elastic belt, sewn into the side seams, that snaps together.

The applicable subheading for style 63-4559 will be 6211.43.0078, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other garments, women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers, jackets and jacket-like garments excluded from heading 6202. The duty rate will be 16 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/.

Style 63-4559 falls within textile category designation 635. 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 Patricia Schiazzano at 646-733-3051.
