RE: The tariff classification of kraft paper, used to produce bags, from Sweden.

Dear Mr. Kest:

In your letter dated April 28, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples were submitted and will be retained for reference. They are sheets of white paper said to be "bleached pure kraft" having a basis weight of 50 grams per square meter. The paper is not coated or impregnated, and will be imported in large rolls. You state that the end use will be for the production of small bags.

The applicable subheading for the above-described paper, not identified by trade name or grade number, will be 4804.39.4020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other (than certain enumerated) kraft paper weighing 150 gsm or less: wrapping paper...bag or sack paper. The rate of duty will be free.

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.


Jean F. Maguire
