RE: The tariff classification of piezoelectric ignitor devices from China.

Dear Mr. Mohn:

In your letter dated October 15, 1991 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The devices are described as follows:

1) Piezoelectric ignitor for "backyard" gas grills

2) Piezoelectric ignitor replacement kit which includes the basic ignitor device, a dis- charge electrode assembly and a high voltage connecting cable/wire.

The applicable subheading for the "backyard" gas grill piezoelectric ignitor or the piezoelectric ignitor replacement kit will be 9613.80.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "(o)ther lighters: (e)lectrical." 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.
