RE: The tariff classification of a refrigerator deodorizer from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Paul:

In your letter dated February 26, 1991 on behalf of K Mart Corporation you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample is being returned as requested.

The deodorizer is operated by four "C" batteries which drive a silent fan for continuous circulation. It contains a ceramic catalyzer encased in a plastic housing and is used to remove odors and bacteria in home refrigerators.

The applicable subheading for the deodorizer will be 8421.39.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for filtering or purifying machinery and apparatus for gases . 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.
