RE: The tariff classification of Viscol 660-P from Japan.

Dear Mr. Cheng:

In your letter dated November 22, 1991, on behalf of your client Sanam Corp., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective import, Viscol 660-P, is a low molecular- weight polypropylene used as a lubricant, which meets the Chapter 34 criteria for a chemically produced organic product of a waxy character.

The applicable subheading for the Viscol 660-P will be 3404.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for artificial waxes and prepared waxes: other. The rate will be free of duty.

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.
