RE: The tariff classification of a women’s coat from China.

Dear Mr. Russo:

In your letter dated January 16, 2007, you requested a classification ruling. The provided sample is being returned as per your request.

Style AT-37289 is a women’s coat constructed of a 3 layer bonded fabric. The outer layer is made of a woven 89% polyester 11% spandex fabric, the middle layer is a plastic film, and the inner layer is made of a 100% polyester knitted pile fabric. The three-quarter length coat has a zippered full front opening, a flared bottom, a removable hood with an elastic drawstring, and inner storm cuffs. Two sets of zippered pockets are found at the front panel below the waist and at either side of the chest. Additional features include a rear-inverted pleat below the waist, a small zippered pocket at the lower left shoulder, an inner zippered pocket, and two open inner pockets. The tariff classification of this coat is governed by the rules used to classify its fabric; Legal Note 1(c), Chapter 60, HTS.

The applicable subheading for the coat will be 6102.30.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Women’s overcoatswindbreakers and similar articles, knitted, other than those of heading 6104: of man made fibers: other: other: women’s.
