RE: The tariff classification of boy’s jackets from China.

Dear Ms. Boullet:

This ruling replaces N024434, dated March 11, 2008, which did not include textile category designation information. A corrected ruling follows.

In your letter dated February 29, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Two samples were submitted with your request. As requested, the samples were returned to you.

Submitted style XB6705 and style XB6307 are boys’ jackets constructed of brushed knit polyester fabric that is heavily napped on both sides. Both styles have stand-up collars, full frontal openings with heavy duty zipper closures, long sleeves with self-fabric elasticized cuffs, side pockets with vertical access secured by zipper closures and hemmed fabric at the bottom that can be adjusted by means of snaps. The styles are sized for boys 8 to 18/20.

The applicable subheading for style XB6705, and style XB6307 will be 6101.30.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for men’s or boys’ overcoats, carcoats, capes, cloaks, anoraks, wind-breakers, and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, other than those of heading 6103: of man-made fibers: other: boys’. The rate of duty will be 28.2 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/.

The jackets fall 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 With the exception of certain products of China, quota/visa requirements are no longer applicable for merchandise which is the product of World Trade Organization (WTO) member countries.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 Bruce Kirschner at 646-733-3048.
