The first product, Milbemectin Technical, consists of a natural (i.e., non-formulated), nonisomeric mixture composed of (by weight) approximately 30% milbemectin A3 (CAS-51596-10-2) and 70% milbemectin A4 (CAS-51596-11-3). The CAS Registry name for milbemectin is (6R,25R)-5-O-demethyl-28-deoxy-6,28-epoxy-25-ethylmilbemycin B mixture with (6R,25R)-5-O-demethyl-28-deoxy-6,28-epoxy-25-methylmilbemycin B.

The second product, Milbeknock® EC, is a formulated (i.e., emulsifiable concentrate) miticide/insecticide containing milbemectin as the active ingredient.

The applicable subheading for Milbemectin Technical will be 3824.90.9150, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Prepared binders for foundry molds or cores; chemical products and preparations of the chemical or allied industries (including those consisting of mixtures of natural products), not elsewhere specified or included; residual products of the chemical or allied industries, not elsewhere specified or included: Other: Other: Other: Other: Other: Other.” The rate of duty will be 5 percent ad valorem.
