RE: The tariff classification of Citrosolv and Citrogreen from Canada

Dear Mr. Smith:

In your letter dated July 22, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Citrosolv is a degreaser used in meat departments, hotel kitchens and other areas where grease builds up. Citrogreen is used as a commercial cleaner. Both products do not contain any aromatic substances.

The applicable HTS subheading for Citrosolv and Citrogreen, when imported in five gallon bottles, will be 3402.20.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for preparations put up for retail sale: other. The rate of duty will be free. When imported in 55 gallons drums, the applicable HTS subheading for Citrosolv and Citrogreen will be 3402.90.5030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other: other: cleaning preparations. The duty rate will be 3.7 percent ad valorem.

Products classifiable under subheading 3402.90.5030 HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a free 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 already been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
