The applicable subheading for the models KE 31 and KE 33 will be 8481.80.9050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other taps, cocks, valves and similar appliances, other. The rate of duty will be 3.7 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.
