RE: The tariff classification of photoluminescent sheet from Japan

Dear Ms. Dyer:

In your letter dated September 22, 2006, on behalf of Izumi America, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The photoluminescent sheet consists of a top layer of polyurethane resin containing photoluminescent pigment and a bottom layer of polyester film. You indicated in a telephone conversation that the weight of the polyurethane layer exceeds the weight of the polyester layer. The sheet will be imported on rolls, in dimensions of 40 inches in width and 300 meters in length.

The applicable subheading for the photoluminescent sheet will be 3920.99.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other plates, sheets, film, foil and strip, of plastics, noncellular and not reinforced, laminated, supported or similarly combined with other materials: of other plastics: film, strip and sheets, all the foregoing which are flexible: other. The rate of duty will be 4.2 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/.

In your request you have asked whether this product is subject to antidumping (AD) duties. A list of AD proceedings at the Department of Commerce (DOC) and their product coverage can be obtained from the DOC website at: http://ia.ita.doc.gov. You may also write to them at the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, Office of Antidumping Compliance, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230. Written decisions regarding the scope of AD/CVD orders are issued by the Import Administration in the Department of Commerce and are separate from tariff classification and origin rulings issued by Customs.

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 Joan Mazzola at 646-733-3023.
