Dear Ms. Curbelo:

In your letter dated February 18, 1998, received in this office on May 4, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is an aluminum pot (calderos, item 113-03-0140). It is made of cast aluminum and does not have a non-stick interior coating. The pot comes with a cover with a plastic button handle.

The applicable subheading for the pot will be 7615.19.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for table, kitchen or other household articles, of aluminum, other, cooking ware, not enameled or glazed and not containing non-stick interior finishes, cast. The rate of duty will be 3.3 percent ad valorem.

Articles which are classifiable under subheading 7615.19.5000, HTS, which are products of the Dominican Republic are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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 James Smyth at 212-466-2084.
