RE: The tariff classification of starch wafers from France

Dear Ms. Druckenbrod:

In your letter dated January 12, 1998, on behalf of Signature Brands LLC, Ocala, FL, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples and an ingredients statement were submitted with your letter. The samples were examined and disposed of. "Wafer Silhouettes" are flat, white, rectangular sheets measuring approximately 6 inches long, 3-1/4 inches wide, and 1/16-inch thick, said to be composed of corn starch, wheat starch, and soya lecithin. Each sample sheet is scored with the outline of a bear, rabbit, or chick. The wafers are used to make donuts in different shapes. The wafer is removed from the sheet, dipped into batter, and then fried. The resulting product will be a bear, rabbit, chick, etc., shaped donut.

The applicable subheading for the wafer silhouettes will be 1905.90.9090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for communion wafers...and similar products...other...other...other. The rate of duty will be 6.3 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 Stanley Hopard at 212-466-5760.
