In your letter dated February 4, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling for Trichloroisocyanuric Acid (Chemical Name - 1,3,5-Trichloro-5-Triazine-2,4,6-Trione) and Dichloroisocyanuric Acid (Chemical Name - 1-Sodium-1,3,5-Dichloro-5-Triazine-2,4,6-Trione) which you have stated are standard compounds used in the laundry and water treatment industries.
