RE: The tariff classification of add-on-cards from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated May 7, 1990, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Your letter describes the add on cards, identified in the submitted literature as AN-120 and EN-1000, as printed circuit boards with components which are designed to be installed in personal computers. The boards are imported without the major chip sets. Your letter indicates that the boards are designed to be used in local area networks. Based on the information you have furnished the boards appear to be dedicated to the transmission of symbols representing written messages, images, or other data between two points using a line connection.

The applicable subheading for the add-on-cards, AN-120 and EN-1000, will be 8517.82.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Other telegraphic apparatus." The rate of duty will be 4.7 percent ad valorem.

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.
