RE: Classification of frozen Australian "Boneless Cheekmeat" or offal of bovine animals

Dear Mr. Morrison:

This is in response to your letter of October 12, 1994, requesting the tariff classification and quota of frozen "Boneless Cheekmeat" from Australia.


The commodity consists of frozen, boneless "cheekmeat" or edible offal from Australia.


What is the tariff classification of such offal under the Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTS)?


"Cheekmeat" or edible offal of bovine animals, frozen, is provided for under subheading 0206.29.0000 of the HTS and is free of duty.


The frozen, boneless "cheekmeat" is classifiable under the provision for "[e]dible offal...[o]f bovine animals, frozen: [o]ther" in subheading 0206.29.0000 of the HTS and is free of duty. There is no quota on offal from Australia.
