RE: The tariff classification of a color scanner from Japan

Dear Mr. Pilon:

In your letter dated July 29, 1992 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The Screen DTS-1015 Desktop Color Scanner is a prepress color image input scanner used to scan illustrations and images into phototypesetting systems. It is a drum-type scanner capable of accepting transparency and reflection originals up to 5.8" x 5.9" in size. Designed for use with Macintosh-based phototypesetting systems, it is capable of resolution of up to 2,500 dots per inch.

The applicable subheading for the Screen DTS-1015 Desktop Color Scanner will be 8442.30.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other machinery, apparatus and equipment for type-founding or typesetting. This provision is free of duty.

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.
