This document amends the Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') Regulations in title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR) in order to remove a provision that draws a distinction between preservative and decorative painting for purposes of the partial duty exemption under subheading 9802.00.80, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). The change is made to conform the CBP Regulations with the holding of a court decision in which the regulatory distinction between preservative and decorative painting was found to be invalid.
