RE: The tariff classification of biscuits from South Africa

Dear Mr. Desai:

In your letter dated February 14, 2000 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Shortbread is a square-shaped biscuit, and Marie is a round product. All are packed for retail sale. The wafers are put up in a container holding 125 grams, all others are in 200-gram packages.

The applicable subheading for these five products will be 1905.30.0049, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for bread, pastry, cakes, biscuits and other bakers’ wares, whether or not containing cocoasweet biscuits; waffles and wafersotherother. The rate of duty will be free.
