RE: The tariff classification of a printed "quick reference card" from Japan.

Dear Mr. Della Ventura:

In your letter dated October 12, 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample was submitted and will be retained for reference. It is a round-cornered rectangular sheet of printed heavyweight paper having a transparent plastic covering on both sides. The sheet is folded in half and measures 8 3/8" x 10 7/8" when closed. The printing, which appears to have been done by a lithographic process, consists of a series of diagrams, accompanied by text, designed to provide operating and troubleshooting assistance to users of certain Sony "Color Video Printers."

The applicable subheading for the above-described "quick reference card" (part no. 3-786-035-11) will be 4911.99.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other (non-enumerated) printed matter, printed on paper in whole or in part by a lithographic process. The rate of duty will be 0.4%.

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.
