RE: The tariff classification of a dietary supplement from Italy

Dear Mr. Salamone:

In your letter dated July 2, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The tablets will be imported in bulk or on foil-covered cards, and repacked into retail containers in the United States.

The applicable subheading for the Sam-e dietary supplement will be 2106.90.9998, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for food preparations not elsewhere specified or included¬other¬other¬other. The rate of duty will be 7 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 212-637-7065.
