RE: The tariff classification of a steel frame from China

Dear Mr. Liu:

In your letter dated July 5, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is a steel frame used to support water filtration units. The water filtration units are attached to the frame with bolts and the frame is secured to a wall with screws. The frame does not take a direct part in the filtration process. It is essentially a steel bracket about 9 inches by 9 1/4 inches with two right angle bends. It has cut-outs along the area that projects from the wall to hold water filters under the sink.

The applicable subheading for the frame will be 8302.50.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for base metal mountings and fittings and similar articles ... hat-racks, hat-pegs, brackets and similar fixtures. The rate of duty will be 3.4 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.

Area Director
