RE: The tariff classification of Flexible Type and Unpopulated Printed Circuit Boards from Taiwan

Dear Mr. Neal:

In your letter dated July 15, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of DDI Global of Anaheim, California.

The merchandise is described in your letter as consisting of three types of Printed Circuit Boards:

Flexible Type Circuit Board
Unpopulated Printed Circuit Board consisting not of 3 or more layers Unpopulated Printed Circuit Boards consisting of 3 or more layers

A sample of each of the above unpopulated printed circuit boards was submitted to this office. The flexible type was made from polyimide as per your description. The unpopulated printed circuit board not of 3 or more layers was made from FR4 and is by your description composed of not 3 or more layers. The third was an unpopulated printed circuit board made of FR4 and described by you as being composed of 3 or more layers.

The applicable subheading for the flexible type printed circuit board will be 8534.00.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Printed circuits: Other: Flexible type. The rate of duty will be free.

The applicable subheading for the unpopulated printed circuit board not of 3 or more layers will be 8534.00.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Printed circuits: Plastics impregnated, not flexible type: Having a base wholly of impregnated glass: Other.” The rate of duty will be free.
