RE: The tariff classification of dibenzyl phosphate (CAS # see

Dear Mr. Corboy:
In your letter dated February 26, 1992 you requested a
tariff classification ruling.
In your request for a ruling you have indicated that tha CAS
number for dibenzyl phosphate is 1623-08-1. Our information
indicates that this CAS number applies to dibenzyl hydrogen
phosphate. Further our research source
indicates that the CAS number for dibenzyl phosphate is 17176-77-
Therefore dibenzyl phoshate (CAS no. 17176-77-1) is
classifiable in subheading 2920.90.2000, Harmonized Tariff
Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other
aromatic esters of inorganic acids. The rate of duty will be 7.2
percent ad valorem.
Dibenzyl hydrogen phosphate (CAS no. 1623-08-1) is
classifiable in subheading 2919.00.3000, HTS, and is dutiable at
the rate of 7.2 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
