RE: The tariff classification of diethylene triamine, polyamines and
N-aminoethyl piperazine from India
Dear Mr. Pallathra:
In your letter dated July 6, 1993, you requested a tariff classification
The applicable HTS subheading for diethylene triamine, CAS 111-40-0 will
be 2921.29.0050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which
provides for acyclic polyamines and their derivatives; salts thereof. The
duty rate will be 7.9 percent ad valorem.
The applicable HTS subheading for N-aminoethyl piperazine will be
2933.59.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which
provides for heterocyclic compounds with nitrogen hetero-atom(s) only; nucleic
acids and their salts. The duty rate will be 7.9 percent ad valorem.
Your inquiry does not provide enough information for us to give a
classification ruling on polyamines, under the HTS. Your request for a
classification ruling should include a complete chemical breakdown by percent
by weight of each component, and the CAS number for each component.
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 already
been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs
officer handling the transaction.
