RE: The tariff classification of PVC tubing from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Zapata:

In your letter dated November 26, 1990, on behalf of Oaklee Industries, California, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted with your letter is lay-flat shrinkable tubing made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastics.

The applicable subheading for the lay-flat PVC tubing will be 3917.32.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other tubes, pipes and hoses, not reinforced or otherwise combined with other materials, without fittings, of polyvinyl chloride. The rate of duty will be 3.1 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.
