RE: The tariff classification of a molybdenum-vanadium-aluminum master alloy from Russia.

Dear Mr. Leontyev:

In your letter dated December 21, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The product to be imported is a molybdenum-vanadium-aluminum master alloy in granular form. It consists of 26.5-28.5 % molybdenum, 48.2-53.1 % vanadium, 14.0– 21.0 % aluminum, 3.0% titanium and less than 0.5% each of other elements.

The applicable subheading for the molybdenum-vanadium-aluminum master alloy will be 8112.40.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for beryllium, chromium, germanium, vanadium, gallium, hafnium, indium, niobium (columbium), rhenium and thallium, and articles of these metals, including waste and scrap, vanadium, other. The general rate of duty will be 2 percent ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

You also ask as to the applicability of the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP). Currently, merchandise classifiable under subheading 8112.40.6000, HTS from Russia, is not entitled to duty free treatment under GSP.

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 Gloria Stingone at 646-733-3020.
