Dear Mr. Kurz:

In your letter dated November 23, 1999, on behalf of your client E.I. Dupont de Nemours, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Ethyl Pyuvate, chemically known as 2-Oxopropanoic acid, ethyl ester, is a nonaromatic ester of a carboxylic acid. KL540, chemically known as (Chlorocarbonyl) (4-trifluoromethoxy) phenyl) carbamic acid, methyl ester, is an aromatic carboxyamide-function compound. The above chemical compounds are intermediates used in the synthesis of herbicide, insecticide and fungicide products.

The applicable subheading for Ethyl pyruvate will be 2918.30.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Carboxylic acids with aldehyde or ketone function but without other oxygen function, their anhydrides, halides, peroxides, peroxyacids and their derivatives: Other: Other..... The rate of duty will be 3.7 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for KL540 will be 2924.29.7000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Carboxyamide-function compounds; amide-function compounds of carbonic acid: cyclic amides (including cyclic carbamates) and their derivatives; salts thereof: Other: Aromatic: Other: Other: Other: Products described in additional U.S. note 3 to section VI. The rate of duty will be 9.3 percent ad valorem.
