RE: The tariff classification of eucalyptus plywood from Brazil

Dear Ms. Long:

In your letter dated November 16, 2000, on behalf of DLH Nordisk, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The ruling was requested on plywood described as 18 mm C+/C- Kombi (Eucalyptus/Elliotti Pine) plywood. The plywood consists of 9 plies of wood of alternating eucalyptus and Elliotti pine species. Both outer plies are of eucalyptus. Each ply is approximately 2 mm thick, and the grain of each ply runs at an angle to the grain the next ply. The plywood will be imported in dimensions of 5’x10’.

The applicable subheading for the eucalyptus plywood will be 4412.14.3060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for plywood consisting solely of sheets of wood, each ply not exceeding 6 mm in thickness; other, with at least one outer ply of nonconiferous wood; not surface covered; other; other. The rate of duty will be 8 percent ad valorem.

The holding set forth above applies only to the specific factual situation and merchandise description as identified in the ruling request. This position is clearly set forth in 19 CFR 177.9(b)(1). This section states that a ruling letter is issued on the assumption that all of the information furnished in the ruling letter, either directly, by reference, or by implication, is accurate and complete in every material respect.

This ruling is being issued under the assumption that the subject goods, in their condition as imported into the United States, conform to the facts and the description as set forth both in the ruling request and in this ruling. In the event that the facts or merchandise are modified in any way, you should bring this to the attention of Customs and you should resubmit for a new ruling in accordance with 19 CFR 177.2. You should also be aware that the material facts described in the foregoing ruling may be subject to periodic verification by the Customs Service.

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 Paul Garretto at 212-637-7009.
