RE: The tariff classification of a laminating machine from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Alludi:

In your letter dated July 18, 1991 on behalf of Quality Sourcing Services Inc. you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The Laminizer is a household appliance used to heat seal photos licenses, membership cards, etc. in plastic sleeves. Documents to be laminated are inserted into a sleeve and then fed into the Laminizer. They exit it from it sealed.

The applicable subheading for the Laminizer will be 8515.80.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electric welding machines and apparatus. The rate of duty will be 2 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.
