Dear Ms. Gooch:

In your letter dated June 5, 2006 you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated as style EWK 800, is a uncolored plain woven fabric composed of 100% glass fiber. It is manufactured wholly from glass rovings and has a silica content of between 54 and 56 percent. Weighing 800 g/m2, this product will be imported in 100 centimeter widths. Your correspondence indicates that this fabric will be used as a reinforcing element in the manufacture of fiberglass boats.

The applicable subheading for the glass fiber woven fabric designated as style EWK 800 will be 7019.40.4060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for glass fibers (including glass wool) and articles thereof (for example, yarn, woven fabrics), woven fabrics of rovings, other, not colored, other, other. The duty rate will be 7.3 percent ad valorem.
