RE: The tariff classification of translucent tracing papers from
the United Kingdom.
Dear Mr. Csak:
In your letter dated April 21, 1995, on behalf of Chartham
Papers, you requested a tariff classification ruling.
Samples of papers identified as "Translucent Computa Plot"
(70 and 90 gsm) were submitted and have been analyzed by the New
York Customs Laboratory. The lab finds that they are sheets of
uncoated translucent paper (weighing 70.1 and 90.6 gsm,
respectively) composed of more than 95% cotton fibers.
Product information accompanying the samples indicates that
these grades are "natural tracing papers" intended to be used
with pen plotters (e.g., for computer-generated architectural and
engineering drawings), and that they will be imported in large
The applicable subheading for the "Translucent Computa Plot"
papers (70 and 90 gsm) will be 4806.30.0000, Harmonized Tariff
Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for tracing
papers. The rate of duty will be free.
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
