RE: The tariff classification of Thionyl Chloride (CAS# 7719-09-7) from India

You state in your letter that the Thionyl Chloride will be used as a pharmaceutical intermediate.

Additionally, Chapter 99, HTSUS, provides for temporary modifications to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States established by legislative, executive and administrative action. Subheading 9902.28.01 provides a temporary free rate of duty for Thionyl Chloride (CAS No. 7719-09-07) (provided for in subheading 2812.10.50).

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/.
