RE: The tariff classification of a rubber filter from Canada.

Dear Ms. Williams:

In your letter dated January 29, 1991, on behalf of Octostop Enterprises, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The filter, known as the "Bullion," is composed of silicone rubber.
It is used for penetration/protection during x-ray, and is placed on the appropriate part of the body to assist radiologists in taking x-rays.

The applicable subheading for the Bullion rubber filter will be 4016.99.5050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of vulcanized rubber other than hard rubber, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem

Goods classifiable under subheading 4016.99.5050, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, will be entitled to a 3.7 percent ad valorem 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.
