RE: The tariff classification of a limestone spindle from Spain

Dear Mr. Hoffacker:

In your letter dated August 15, 2000, on behalf of your client, Ibero-America Tile Company, you requested a tariff classification ruling regarding a stone spindle.

A sample of the stone, from which the spindle – item no. B-271 was made, was submitted and was sent to our Customs laboratory for analysis. The stone, which is identified as “Rojo Alicante”, is a polished reddish stone with white veins.

Although your letter refers to this product as “marble”, an analysis of the stone taken by our Customs laboratory indicates that it is actually composed of non-agglomerated other calcareous stone (limestone), not marble.

The applicable subheading for the limestone spindle will be 6802.92.00, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for worked monumental or building stone (except for slate) and articles thereof, other than goods of heading 6801: other: other calcareous stone. The rate of duty will be 4.9 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 Jacob Bunin at 212-637-7074.
