RE: The tariff classification of meat packaging nets from the Netherlands

Dear Mr. de Haan:

In your letter dated July 9, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of an importer, Anka BV.

You have submitted 5 samples of meat packing nets which are tubular knit and you indicated, in a phone conversation with this office, that the meat packaging nets are made of 60% rubber and 40% polyester. Two of the samples are open-work tubular knit fabrics and are 2.5" (white) and 2" (red and white) in width respectively and appear to be made partially of textile covered rubber thread and partially of man-made fiber yarn. The other three are also tubular knit fabrics, but not open-work, and the widths of these red and white striped fabrics are from 2.5" to 6". Two of these appear to be made partially of textile covered rubber thread and partially of man-made fiber yarn and the other appears to be entirely of man-made fiber.

The applicable subheading for the open-work fabric meat packaging nets will be 6002.10.8020, HTS, which provides for other knitted or crocheted fabrics, of a width not exceeding 30 cm, containing by weight 5 percent or more of elastomeric yarn or rubber thread, other, open-work fabrics, warp knit. The duty rate will be 8.9 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the knit meat packaging nets that are not open-work will be 6002.10.8080, HTS, which provides for other knitted or crocheted fabrics, of a width not exceeding 30 cm, containing by weight 5 percent or more of elastomeric yarn or rubber thread, other, other. The duty rate will be 8.9 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 Jeff Konzet at 212-466-5885.

Sincerely,

Paul K. Schwartz
