Dear Ms. Van der Vieren:

In your letter dated December 1, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Your letter contained a sample of coir fiber to be used for Christmas decorations (angel grass).

The merchandise will be free of duty in both 2000 and 2001.

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 Mitchel Bayer at 212-637-7086.
