Receipt of Domestic Interested Party Petition Concerning Tariff Classification of Glass Optical Preforms
Document Number: E7-5712
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-03-28
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
The Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has received a petition submitted on behalf of a domestic interested party requesting the reclassification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) of glass optical preforms. CBP's current position is that glass optical preforms are classifiable duty-free in subheading 7002.20.1000, HTSUS, as glass rods of fused quartz or other fused silica, unworked. Petitioner maintains that this classification is incorrect because the optical fiber preforms consist of a glass core rod that has been ``worked'' by the addition of a layer of cladding glass to the core rod. Petitioner asserts that subheading 7020.00.6000, HTSUS, other articles of glass, other, represents the correct classification. The 2007 rate of duty under this provision is 5 percent ad valorem.
