RE: The tariff classification of various animal food suplements from Canada.

Dear Mr. MacDonald:

In your letter dated October 28, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

We advised through a misadvertance that your products 30, 31, 32, 34 and 35 were classified in HTS subheading 3823.90.5050. The correct numbers are 30, 31, 32, 33 and 34. Our letter of December 20, 1991 is therefore ammended to reflect this change.

According to your request you plan to export five animal food suplements to the United States. Each of these products is a mixture of vitamins, minerals and some residue wheat products. These products do not include the necessary requirements for Chapter 23. They are also excluded from Chapter 30.

The applicable subheading for each of these products will be 3823.90.5050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for chemical mixtures not elsewhere provided for. The rate of duty will be 5 percent ad valorem.

Merchandise classifiable in HTS Subheading 3823.90.5050 which is produced in Canada, is dutiable at the rate of 2 percent ad valorem under the U.S.-Canadian Free Trade Agreement, 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.
