RE: The tariff classification of a tarpaulin from China or Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Wavra:

In your letter dated December 20, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample tarpaulin was submitted with your ruling request. The sample consists of a woven textile fabric that is coated on both sides with a blue plastics material that is visible to the naked eye. The fabric itself is composed of strips, each of which are under 5 millimeters in width. Such strips are usually composed of polyethylene. The tarpaulin has hems and grommets. As you requested, your sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the tarpaulin will be 3926.90.9890, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Joan Mazzola at 212-466-5580.
