As indicated by the submitted information, both the building wire and the welding cable are made of copper and are insulated with PVC, cross linked polyethylene, or rubber, depending on the type. Both the building wire and welding cable have an electric capacity of 600 volts.

The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist David Curran at 212-466-5680.
