RE: The tariff classification of turbine parts from Canada

Dear Mr. Willette:

In your letter dated April 3, 1990, on behalf of your client, Ralfor Steel, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items are carbon steel parts to be used on an impulse turbine in hydroelectric projects. They include a bearing shell, nut guard, guide vane, gate lever, and gate link.

The applicable subheading for the nut guard, gate lever, and gate link will be 8410.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for hydraulic turbines, water wheels and regulators therefor; parts thereof: parts, including regulators. The duty rate will be 7.5 percent ad valorem.

Your inquiry does not provide enough information for us to give a classification ruling on the bearing shell and guide vane. For the bearing shell, provide detailed information on the construction and composition and how this item functions. For the guide vane, provide a blow-up of the area on the schematic so as to reveal its operation within the turbine. Also indicate its function.

Goods classifiable under subheading 8410.90.0000, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a free rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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 been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
