The rate of duty will be 19 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 6908.10.5000, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 9.5 percent rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.
