TARIFF NO.: 4007.00.0000

RE: The tariff classification of vulcanized rubber thread from Malaysia.

Dear Mr. Wadia:

In your letter dated March 7, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The rubber thread will be imported in the form of "ribbons" consisting of parallel strands of thread. The rubber thread will be used in the manufacture of narrow elastic fabrics. At the time of importation, the threads will not be combined or covered with any textile materials.

The applicable subheading for the vulcanized rubber thread will be 4007.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for vulcanized rubber thread and cord. The rate of duty will be 4.2 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 4007.00.0000, HTS, which are products of Malaysia, are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) 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.
