RE: The tariff classification of thermal paper (register tape) from China.

Dear Mr. Barrett:

In your letter dated August 10, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample identified as “paper thermal register tape” was submitted for our examination. It is a 5½-cm-wide roll of white, coated paper that blackens when exposed to heat. The product appears to be of a kind used in certain cash registers and other devices that produce receipts and the like by means of a thermal print head or stylus coming into contact with the paper.

The applicable subheading for the above-described product will be 4811.90.9090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other (non-enumerated) coated, impregnated or covered paper. The rate of duty will be Free.

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/.

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 Carl Abramowitz at 646-733-3037.
