RE: Soft Compact Calender; Single, Dual, Multiple Nip Calender; Off-Line Machine Calender; NY 843361 Modified

Dear Mr. Powell:

In NY 843361, dated July 27, 1989, the Area Director of Customs, New York Seaport, addressed, among other things, the tariff status of soft compact calenders used off-line. The descriptions of these machines and other contents of the decision are incorporated by reference in this decision.

HQ 955023, of today's date, represents our current position on the classification of these calenders. Customs will no longer distinguish between machines, cylinders and parts used on-line and those used off-line, as long as the involved process is one of "making" paper. Accordingly, soft compact off-machine calenders will hereafter be classified in subheading 8420.10.20, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), as calendering or similar rolling machines for making paper pulp, paper or paperboard. The rate of duty is free. A copy of HQ 955023 is enclosed.

Under the authority of section 177.9(d)(1), Customs Regulations, NY 843361 is modified accordingly.


John Durant, Director
Commercial Rulings Division
