Dear Mr. Gilbert:

In your letter, dated September 17, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling regarding two boards.

Samples of these boards were submitted with your ruling request.

You stated that the products consist of magnesium oxide plus magnesium chloride, plant fiber and other components.

Analysis of the samples by our laboratory confirms your description of their composition.

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.
