RE: Tuner; NY 838855; HQ 088498; Subheading 8528.10.80; Antidumping Order A-588-014-021.

Dear Mr. Pauksta:

On April 14, 1989, Customs issued to your office New York (NY) ruling letter 838855, which classified a tuner for a satellite television receiver from Japan within subheading 8528.10.8055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), as an apparatus for reception of television signals related to satellites. At that time, we based our decision on the conclusion that the subject tuners were substantially complete receivers. However, upon further review we find this not to be the case.

In Headquarters (HQ) ruling letter 088498 (5/02/91)(copy attached), Customs classified a tuner for a satellite television receiver within subheading 8529.90.10, HTSUSA, as a tuner for television apparatus. This office is of the opinion that this ruling is applicable to your merchandise. In order to insure uniformity in Customs classification of this merchandise and eliminate uncertainty, we are modifying NY 838855 to reflect the above classification effective with the date of this letter. This notice should be considered a modification of NY 838855 under 19 C.F.R. 177.9(d)(1).

Tuners for television apparatus may be subject to antidumping duties. Tuners from Sanshin in Japan may be subject to Antidumping Order A-588-014-021. Any questions regarding this
issue should be referred to the Office of Antidumping Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, (202) 377-5255.
