Dear Mr. Johnston:

In your letter dated September 15, 1993, written on behalf of your client, FMC Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The applicable subheading for Belclene 283 will be 3911.90.5010, HTS, which provides for other petroleum resins, coumarone-indene resins, polyterpenes, polysulfides, polysulfones and other products specified in note 3 to this chapter not elsewhere specified or included, in primary forms.

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.
