RE: Tariff classification of melamine covered fiberboard planking from France

Dear Mr. Stone:

In your letter dated August 26, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on high density fiberboard planking suitable for use on floors and walls. A sample section of a board was submitted. It consists of fiberboard tongue-and-grooved on the edges and ends and covered on the top and bottom surfaces with melamine coated paper. The imported board or plank will measure 5/16 inch thick by 7-1/2 inches wide by 50-3/4 inches long. The fiberboard is made of pine and spruce wood fibers and has a density of 0.95 grams per cubic centimeter.

The applicable subheading for the melamine covered wood fiberboard planking will be 4411.19.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for fiberboard of wood or other ligneous materials, whether or not bonded with resins or other organic substances: fiberboard of a density exceeding 0.8 grams per cubic centimeter: other (than not mechanically worked or surface covered): other (than not surface covered): other (than tileboard). The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.

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.
