Dear Mr. Reynolds:

In your letter dated September 28, 2000, on behalf of Jet USA Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling on plate processors from the Netherlands. Descriptive literature for the Jet Line Models 455/680/900 Water Wash Series In-Line Plate Processors was submitted with your ruling request.

The literature submitted with your ruling request indicates that the Jet Line Models 455/680/900 Water Wash Series In-Line Plate Processors have been developed to produce high quality letterpress and dry offset plates. The Jet Line Series has been designed with an in-line auto adjusting plush brush washout system, multi-function control panel, automatic water exchanger, in-line dryer and in-line post exposure. Whether steel, aluminum or polyester-backed plates are used, the press ready plates are finished in about 20 minutes.
