RE: The tariff classification of various chemicals from Israel,
France, Germany or Great Brittain.
Dear Mr. Casanas:
In your letter dated August 26, 1993, you requested a tariff
classification ruling on behalf of your client, Morre-Tec
The applicable subheading and duty under The Harmonized Tariff Schedule
of the United States (HTS), for the listed product are as follows:
Chemical HTS no Duty
1) 3,5 dinitrobenzoic acid 2916.39.7000 3.7 cents per kiolgram plus
(CAS # 99-34-3) 17.9 percent ad valorem
2) 3,5-dinitro-4-chlorobenzo 2904.90.1500 3.7 cents per kilogram plus
triflouride (CAS# 393-75-9) 15.9 percent ad valorem
3) 3,5 dinitro-ortho-toluic acid 2917.39.7000 3.7 cents per kilogram plus
(CAS # 28169-46-2) 17.9 percent ad valorem
Under the United States-Israel Free Trade Agreement, merchandise
classifiable in HTS 2904.90.1500 and 2916.39.7000, which has been produced in
Israel, is duty free provided all appropiate requirements have been met.
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.
