RE: The tariff classification of filters with spin-on element from Germany.

Dear Ms. O'Boyle:

In your letter dated January 24, 1991 on behalf of E.P.E. Fluid Power Components you requested a tariff classification ruling.

EPE filters with spin-on element for pipeline and tank mounting are designed to protect hydraulic and mechanical components from damage caused by dirt. The filters are suitable for use with mineral, hydraulic, lubricating and cooling oils and aqueous solutions.

The applicable subheading for the filters with spin-on element will be 8421.29.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other filtering or purifying machinery and apparatus for liquids. The rate of duty will be 3.9 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.

Area Director
