RE: The tariff classification of a printer ribbon from Mexico

Dear Mr. McNamara:

In your letter dated February 3, 1993, on behalf of Genicom, Corp., you requested a classification ruling.

The merchandise under consideration is a ribbon that is designed and used with an ADP output printer. The ribbon is woven of man-made fibers, and is approximately 35mm in width and is enclosed in a plastic cartridge. The cartridge housing is approximately 20 inches in length, 10 inches in height, and 2 inches in width.

The applicable subheading for the printer ribbon will be 9612.10.9010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other ribbons, woven, of man-made fibers. The duty rate will be 9 percent ad valorem.

The woven printer ribbon falls within textile category designation 621. As a product of Mexico this merchandise may be subject to Visa requirements and quota restraints or Visa and quota restrictions based upon international textile trade agreements.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, to obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report On Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

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.
