RE: The tariff classification of a men’s jacket from China

Dear Ms. Boullet:

In your letter dated September 15, 2006, you requested a classification ruling. A sample was submitted and is being returned as you requested.

The item in question, style HM7062, is a men’s jacket made from a combination of 100% nylon oxford fabric with a visible polyurethane coating on the inner surface and 100% polyester knit fleece fabric. The chest portions consist of woven oxford on the exterior quilted to the knit polyester. The upper back, the entire sleeves (with the exception of a small triangular-shaped piece at the wrist) and the lower front portions that comprise over-sized pockets have woven fabric on the exterior and knit fabric backing. The lower back is knit fabric only. The jacket has a full front opening with a zipper extending to the top of the collar, long sleeves with tabs secured by hook and loop closures, slant pockets at the waist and an elasticized drawstring through the bottom hem.

According to your letter the manufacturing process consists of cutting all fabric to shape, sewing the woven and knit pieces together (including quilting), then sewing the parts together into a finished garment.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6210.40.5020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906 or 5907: other men’s or boys’ garments: of man-made fibers: anoraks (including ski-jackets), windbreakers and similar articles. The duty rate will be 7.1 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 jacket falls within textile category 634. With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries. The textile category number above applies to merchandise produced in non-WTO member-countries. Quota and visa requirements are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information on quota and visa requirements applicable to this merchandise, we suggest you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” which is available on our web site at www.cbp.gov. For current information regarding possible textile safeguard actions on goods from China and related issues, we refer you to the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel of the Department of Commerce 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 William Raftery at 646-733-3047.
