RE: The tariff classification and status under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), of fiberglass, acrylic and brass wire yarns from Mexico; Article 509

Dear Mr. Weber:

In your letter dated April 25, 1995 you requested a ruling on the status of fiberglass, acrylic and brass wire yarns from Mexico under the NAFTA. This merchandise was the subject of ruling NY 808241 of April 3, 1995, which dealt with the tariff classification only.

You have enclosed several meters of item 5P-530-2580, a twisted, uncolored yarn, which you state is of 61.6% glass, 20.6% acrylic and 17.8% ".007 Brass" wire. We assume that this breakdown is by weight. You state that this yarn is "woven into brake linings and used as friction pads in industrial applications." You also state that "the glass filament is manufactured and extruded in Aiken, South Carolina and subsequently shipped to our plant in Juarez, Mexico."

As you were notified in ruling NY 808241, the applicable subheading for item 5P-530-2580, will be 7019.10.1580, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUSA), which provides for glass fibers (including glass wool) and articles thereof (for example, yarn, woven fabrics); slivers, rovings, yarn and chopped strands; yarns; not colored; other; other. The general rate of duty will be 7.3 percent ad valorem.

Each of the non-originating materials used to make the yarn has satisfied the changes in tariff classification required under HTSUSA General Note 12(t)/70. The yarn will be entitled to a 5.4 percent ad valorem rate of duty under the NAFTA upon compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and agreements.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 181 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 181). 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.

This ruling letter is binding only as to the party to whom it is issued and may be relied on only by that party.
