RE: The tariff classification of paper-based self-adhesive label material, from England

Dear Ms. Wiles:

In your letter dated October 21, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Samples were submitted, which will be retained for reference. The product is identified as “HGW/S660/PET 36 under part number SD 5282”. It consists of three (3) layers, as follows:

A top layer consisting of unprinted, bleached, cast-coated, printable label paper, not printed or colored.

A pressure-sensitive adhesive at a coat weight of approximately 25 grams per square meter which is permanently adhered to the top layer.

A bottom protective release liner that consists of a 1.5 mil polyester film coated with a silicone release coating.

The product will be imported in rolls, 1 meter x 1500 meters. Its ultimate use in the United States is to be converted into printed or unprinted pressure-sensitive paper labels.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 4811.21.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: Gummed or adhesive paper and paperboard: Pressure sensitive. The rate of duty will be 2.9 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 Carl Abramowitz, at 212-637-7060.
