The subject merchandise is described as a sugar syrup which is produced from sugar cane or sugar beet and will contain sugar solids, water and more than 6 percent soluble non-sugar solids. This merchandise will be imported in bulk.

The applicable subheading for the sugar syrup will be 1702.90.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other sugars...sugar syrups not containing added flavoring or coloring matter...other, including invert sugar: derived from sugar cane or sugar beets...other ...other.
