Dear Ms. Blackshire:
In your letter dated March 8, 1994, you requested a tariff classification ruling.
ESSENTIAL OIL HTS RATE

Coriander Oil 3301.29.5050 Free

Your inquiry does not provide enough information for us to give a classification ruling on Copahu (copaifera officinalis), under the HTS. Your request for a classification ruling should include a manufacturing flow chart showing the manufacturing process of the copahu, and a clarification as to whether the product is an oleoresin, or whether it has been further processed and distilled to produce an essential oil.
These products may be subject to the regulations of the Food and Drug Administration. You may contact them at 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, Maryland 20857, telephone number (202) 443-3380.
This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have already been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
