RE: The tariff classification and status under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), of "Slurp N' Fresh" from Canada; Article 509.

Dear Mr. Underhill:

In your letter dated May 13, 1999, you requested a ruling on the status of Slurp N' Fresh from Canada under the NAFTA.

The product is a pet oral freshener consisting purified water, potassium sorbate, yucca extract, and mint oil extract.

The applicable tariff provision will be 3824.90.9050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for foundry molds or cores; chemical products and preparations of the chemical or allied industries (including those consisting of mixtures of natural products), not elsewhere specified or included; residual products of the chemical or allied industries, not elsewhere specified or included: other. The general rate of duty will be 5 percent ad valorem.

This product, being wholly obtained or produced entirely in the territory of the United States and Canada, will meet the requirements of HTSUSA General Note 12(b)(i), and will therefore be entitled to a free rate of duty under the NAFTA upon compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and agreements.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 181 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 181).

This ruling letter is binding only as to the party to whom it is issued and may be relied on only by that party.

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 Andrew Stone at 212-637-7063.
