In T.D. 37200 the court held that certain tin disks cut in Canada from American tin plate in the manufacture of cans were still tin plate, and that a change in condition which was not an advancement in value or improvement in condition with reference to the condition of the tin plate exported did not preclude the free entry of the returned disks. dissenting opinion pointed out that the returned material was not tin plate, but a product or by-product of tin plate, which had been improved in condition by a manufacturing process for the particular purposes for which the disks were to be used in the United States.

In T.D. 44897 the court referred to its decision in T.D. 37200, but refused to apply it to a different set of facts, holding that the question of whether merchandise has been advanced in value or improved in condition by a manufacturing process abroad is one of fact. The reasoning in the opinion in T.D. 44897 appears to follow that of the dissenting opinion in T.D. 37200.

In T.D. 37645 and T.D. 37981 the materials held entitled to free entry under the tariff provision for domestic products returned in force at the time of their importation were metallic residues derived abroad from American materials by processes of elimination and segregation and imported for the recovery of material substantially identical in character and use with the material originally exported. The residues apparently had no value except for the recovery of the basic metallic portions.

In the instant case crude petroleum of American origin is exported to Canada. Gasoline, kerosene, and distillate are removed from the crude oil by processes of segregation and elimination in a Canadian refinery. If the refining is by distillation only, the remaining portion of the original petroleum, with the exception of some sludge which may remain in the tanks, is known commercially as "fuel oil” and is imported into the United States to be marketed as a fuel. If the cracking process is used in the foreign refinery, there is a greater recovery of the primary products, and the remaining portion is imported into the United States for sale and use as road oil. It is understood that both the fuel oil and the road oil sell for a less price in the United States than similar units of the crude petroleum from which they are derived.

After a careful consideration of the matter, the Bureau is of the opinion that the fuel and road oils are not the commodities exported, but new articles produced in Canada, differing from the exported crude petroleum in quality, commercial designation, and use, and therefore necessarily to be considered a product of Canada, rather than of the United States (T.D. 32285). If it could be conceded that the imported oils were exported as distinguishable components of the

a

crude petroleum shipped from the United States, the Bureau is now of the opinion that it would be necessary to hold that they have been advanced in value or improved in condition with reference to their condition at the time of exportation and the intended use in the United States (T.D. 38108; T.D. 44897).

In view of these considerations, the Bureau now holds that the decisions cited in its letter of August 10, 1933, are not controlling, and that the imported road and fuel oils are not entitled to free entry under paragraph 1615 of the tariff act, but are classifiable under paragraph 1733 and subject to the import tax provided for in paragraph 601 (c) (4) of the Revenue Act of 1932. You will please be governed accordingly.

As this decision will result in the assessment of import taxes on merchandise hitherto admitted free of duty under an established practice, it should not be applied to such merchandise imported before the expiration of 30 days after this letter is published in the weekly TREASURY DECISIONS. Respectfully,

JAMES H. MOYLE, (110508.)
