RE: The tariff classification of cyclopentene from Japan.

Dear Mr. Corboy:

In your letter dated October 3, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The applicable subheading for cyclopentene (CAS# 142-29-0) will be 2902.19.0050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other cyclanes, cyclenes and cycloterpenes. 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.
