RE: The tariff classification of an electric motor speed sensor from Mexico

Dear Mr. Noell:

In your letter dated September 10, 1992, on behalf of your client, NETP, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item in question is foot-long electrical harness which contains an impedance sensor on one end and a molded connector on the other end. The unit is used to monitor the speed of the electric motor that powers the hydraulic pump in an ABS brake module. The sensor transmits analog electrical signals, proportional to the motor speed, to the ABS module, which in turn regulates the current to the motor and controls its speed and resulting output power of the hydraulic motor.

The applicable subheading for the sensor harness will be 9032.90.6080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other parts and accessories of automatic regulating or controlling instruments and apparatus, other. The duty rate will be 4.9 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 9032.90.6080, HTS, which are products of Mexico are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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.
