Dear Ms. Davidson:

In your letter dated October 31, 1995 you requested a ruling on the status of two Seashell Hurricane Candle from Canada under the NAFTA.

The merchandise does not qualify for preferential treatment under the NAFTA because the seashell and the cowry shell coaster are from a non-originating country Philippines.
