In your letter dated May 2, 1990, on behalf of Horndove Marketing, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The applicable subheading for the cellular synthetic rubber strip will be 4008.11.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for plates, sheets, strip...of vulcanized rubber, of cellular rubber, other. The rate of duty will be 6.6 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 4008.11.5000, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 5.2 percent ad valorem rate of duty under the United States- Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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.
