RE: The tariff classification of Photographic Chemicals from Japan.

Dear Mr. Harris:

In your letter dated May 23, 1994, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective imports, Z-218, Z-434, Z-469, and Z-483 are photographic chemicals known as "Anti-Fogging Agents" used in color negative photographic paper. They are classified as follows:

Item Classification Duty
Z-218 2933.90.2500 8.5%
Z-434 2933.90.9500 7.9%
Z-469 2933.90.2500 8.5%
Z-470 2933.90.2500 8.5%
Z-483 2933.90.2500 8.5%

In our opinion, "Anti-Fogging Agents" are not within the scope of the Anti Dumping Order (A-588-832).

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.
