RE: The tariff classification of crude sea mud from Belize

Dear Ms. Stiefel:

In your letter dated May 2, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling regarding dried sea mud. A sample was submitted with your request.

You state in your letter that crude sea mud, free from foreign matter such as leaves, rocks and wood, is air dried, mechanically pulverized and milled to obtain a fine powder. You further state that no other minerals or synthetic materials are added to the mud during processing.

The applicable subheading for the dried sea mud will be 2530.90.0050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for natural substances not elsewhere specified or included: other: other. The rate of duty will be free.

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.
