RE: The tariff classification of textile bolting cloth fabrics from Switzerland and France

Dear Ms. Perreira:

In your letter dated March 28, 2008, on behalf of Sefar Filtration Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You supplied three representative samples which were identified with the part numbers: 1. 3A03-0160-115-13 Sefar Nytal Mono PA-8 1/2XXX-160, SG, equalized, 2. 3B17-0850-158-00 Sefar Tetex Mono 17-2005-W 022, WA L4 158 cm, and
3. 3B23-0910-163-00 Sefar Tetex Mono 23-1001-K 056 163 cm. Your letter states that all three products are bolting cloths made of synthetic filament yarn. These fabrics are woven to precise specifications, are consistently reproducible, are constant in uniformity of mesh size, and are not deformed by use. These fabrics are marketed and sold for sifting/filtering/screening.

The first item, part number 3A03-0160-115-13 Sefar Nytal Mono, is stated to be a plain weave and made of nylon monofilament that is coated with an antistatic agent. It is used in screening/milling applications for any dry product filtration.

The second item, part number 3B17-0850-158-00 Sefar Tetex Mono, is stated to be a plain weave and made of PEEK monofilament that has no surface treatment. This product is used mainly in the chemical industry.

The third item, part number 3B23-0910-163-00 Sefar Tetex Mono, is stated to be a satin weave and made of nylon 11 monofilament that has no surface treatment. This product is a filter fabric used mainly in liquid/solid separation.

The applicable subheading for all three products listed above will be 5911.20.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for textile products and articles, for technical uses, specified in note 7 to this chapter: bolting cloth, whether or not made up: other, other. 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 Deborah Walsh at (646) 733-3044.
