RE: The tariff classification of Egg Phosphatides from Japan

Dear Mr. Corboy:

In your letter dated February 15, 1995 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The applicable subheading for Egg Phosphatides will be 2923.20.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other lecithins and other phosphoaminolipids. The rate of duty will be 5 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
