RE: The tariff classification of roofing material (modified bitumen) from Holland.

Dear Mr. Cohen:

In your letter dated August 15, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted consists of a nonwoven substrate fabric composed of 100 percent polyester man-made fibers that has been laminated to an SBS modified asphalt. The material measures about 1/4" thick and will be imported in rolls.

The applicable subheading for the material will be 5603.00.9010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for nonwovens, impregnated, coated or covered with material other than or in addition to rubber, plastics, wood pulp or glass fibers. The rate of duty will be 12.5 percent ad valorem.

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.
