RE: The tariff classification of frozen doughs from Saudi Arabia.

Dear Mr. Rothwell:

In your letter dated May 30, 1990, on behalf of Waleed El Shaer, Falls Church, VA, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Ingredients breakdowns for two products, and illustrative literature for one, accompanied your inquiry. "Kunafa" shredded dough is a frozen product in the form of this strands or filaments, made from water, flour, corn starch, vegetable oil, dry milk, salt and calcium prop???ate. After thawing, the dough will be used to make pastry desserts, when mixed with honey, nuts, spices and butter, and baked. "Phyllo" is described as thin sheets of frozen dough, composed of flour, water, cornstarch, salt, calcuim prop???ate and sodium sulphate. The sheets, when thawed, will be used as wrappers for baked goods (strudels, ???????) or cheese, vegetable, or meat-filled appetizers.

The applicable subheading for the frozen doughs will be 1901.20.0090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for food preparations of flour, meal, starch or malt extract...mixes and doughs for the preparation of bakers' wares of heading 1905...other...other. The rate of duty will be 10 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.
