Dear Mr. Wells:

In your letter dated March 4, 1998, on behalf of Amusement Products of America and Reliatex Inc., which was received April 6, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The manufacturer is Plasticotta U.K. Limited, Bolton, U.K.

The second item, Article #2 (Cotta 600P cbs fr soft play), consists of a woven polyester man-made fiber fabric (1100 decitex, 2200 x 1800) that has been coated on both sides with a compact polyvinyl chloride plastics material.
