RE: The tariff classification of a Pillow Massager from China and Taiwan

Dear Mr. Eisen:

In your letter dated April 22, 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Avon Products, Inc., New York, NY.
The Pillow Massager consists of a thick foam cylindrical pillow with a zippered textile cover. Inside the foam material is a long plastic tray housing two batteries and a vibrating mechanism that is connected to an external switch. The pillow is approximately 12 inches in length and 5 inches in diameter. The pillow can be used to provide a vibrating massage to various parts of the body.

The applicable subheading for the Pillow Massager will be 9019.10.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for mechano-therapy appliances and massage apparatus; parts and accessories thereof. The rate of duty will be 4.2 percent.

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.

The sample is being returned as requested.
