RE: The tariff classification of SA-597 from Canada.

Dear Ms. Schirber:

In your letter dated August 8, 1989 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The applicable subheading for the SA-597 will be 3402.11.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for organic surface-active agents, whether or not put up for retail sale: anionic: aromatic or modified aromatic. The duty rate will be 7.2 percent ad valorem.

No sample was furnished for SA-697.

Goods classifiable under subheading SA-597, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 5.7 percent ad valorem rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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.
