RE: The tariff classification of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film for use in the production of thermal transfer ribbons.

Dear Mr. Babcock:

In your letter dated February 4, 1993, on behalf of Xerox Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The PET film will be imported in rolls of 15,000 meters in length by 3 feet in width. The sheets, which will be cut into ribbons after importation, are coated for use in the production of thermal transfer ribbons for telecopier machines. You did not state the country of origin in your letter. The rate of duty provided below applies to goods from those countries eligible for Most Favored Nation treatment.

The applicable subheading for the coated PET film will be 3921.90.4025, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other plates, sheets, film, foil, and strip, of plastics, other, polyethylene terephthalate film, in rolls, coated for use in the production of thermal transfer ribbons. The rate of duty will be 4.2 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.
