RE: The tariff classification of 1-(2-tolyl) piperazine HCL (CAS# 70849- 60-4) from France.

Dear Mr. Corboy:

In your letter dated April 15, 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The applicable subheading for 1-(2-tolyl) piperazine HCL will be 2933.59.3500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other aromatic heterocyclic compounds containing a pyrimidine ring or piperazine ring in the structure: products described in additional U.S. note 3 to section VI. The rate of duty will be 13.5 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.
