Dear Mr. Hupert:

In your letter dated January 28, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The subject product, Genomer 1456, is a low molecular weight prepolymer containing only a very low number of ether repeating units. It is designed to be transformed into a higher molecular weight polymer when reacted with other ingredients.

The applicable subheading for Genomer 1456 will be 3907.20.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: "Polyacetals, other polyethers and epoxide resins, in primary forms; polycarbonates, alkyd resins, polyallyl esters and other polyesters, in primary forms: Other polyethers." The rate of duty will be 0.9 cents per kilogram plus 7 percent ad valorem.

This merchandise may be subject to the requirements of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), which is administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. You may contact them at 402 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460, telephone number (202) 554-1404, or EPA Region II at (908) 321-6669.
