Dear Mr. Voyatzis:

In your letter dated January 24, 1991 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples were included with your request. The subject merchandise is stated to contain 60 percent sesame seeds, 19.4 percent sugar, and 20.6 percent glucose. The product will be imported in the form of bars in various weights.

The applicable subheading for the sesame cakes will be 1704.90.2005, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Sugar confectionery (including white chocolate), not containing cocoa...other: confections or sweetmeats ready for consumption...other: put up for retail sale.. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem. Articles classifiable under subheading 1704.90.2005, HTS, are subject to the quota quantity restrictions provided for under subheading 9903.17.05, HTS.

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.
