RE: The tariff classification of sucrose/glucose syrup from Canada

Dear Mr. Ralston:

In your letter dated July 18, 2003, on behalf of Huron Sweet Supplier Co., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The product is described as a blend of 90 percent sucrose and 10 percent glucose in liquid form with no added color or flavor. The blend contains 68 to 70 percent sugar solids. The granular cane sugar in the blend is from Mexico, and the 42 high fructose corn syrup is produced in either the United States or Canada. The product will be shipped from Canada in liquid tankers.

The applicable tariff provision for the sucrose/glucose syrup will be 1702.90.5800, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for Other sugars...sugar syrups not containing added flavoring or coloring matter...other...other: Blended syrups described in additional U.S. note 4 to chapter 17...other. The general rate of duty will be 33.9 cents per kilogram of total sugars plus 5.1 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 John Maria at 646-733-3031.
