RE: The tariff classification of various ceiling fans from Thailand

Dear Ms. Ateshkadi:

In your letter dated June 11, 1990 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items in question, Sears stock numbers 1158, 11602 and 11622, are all permanently mounted ceiling fans with motor outputs ranging from 70 - 75 watts. Models 11602 and 11622 also come with a three-ribbed light fixture as part of the unit.

The applicable subheading for these ceiling fans will be 8414.51.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for ceiling fans for permanent installation, with a self-contained electric motor of an output not exceeding 125 watts. The duty rate will be 4.7 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 8414.51.0030, HTS, which are products of Thailand are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) 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.
