RE: The tariff classification of a PVC coated textile geogrid material, from Germany.

Dear Ms. Spivey:

In your letter dated September 2,1997, on behalf of Luckenhaus North America Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling. The manufacturer is Luckenhaus Technische Textilien GmbH, Germany.

You indicate that this material, which will be imported as roll goods, will be used for civil engineering, waste containment and road pavement overlay applications, etc.

The applicable subheading for the material will be 3921.90.1950, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other plates, sheets, film, foil and strip, of plastics, combined with a single textile material, other, and weighing not more than 1.492kg/m2. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
