The meter will be used in the United States to test leather products for automotive seat covers to determine if the leather material may cause fogging of the windshield or side windows of an automobile. The meter contains a halogen lamp as a light source and lenses to focus the light onto the specimen.

The applicable subheading for the digital haze meter will be 9027.50.4060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other instruments and apparatus using optical radiations (ultraviolet, visible, infrared); electrical, other The rate of duty will be 4.9 percent ad valorem.
