RE: The tariff classification of a sprayer and a dispenser from Germany.

Dear Mr. Karafil:

In your letter dated February 9, 1994 you requested a tariff classification ruling. You submitted samples of the subject merchandise with your request.

The Sprayette IV sprayer is used to spray liquids such as window cleaning fluids and the like. The main components consist of a spray head dispenser, a simple piston pump with spring return and fluid accumulator, plastic dip tube, the length of which differs according to the product and container, shroud closure, which torques down on the container, and plastic hood.

The Sd 200 dispenser is used to dispense measured amounts of emulsions and gels such as hand and body lotions, liquid soap and the like. The components of this gel dispenser are similar to those of the sprayer except that the dispenser head is wide- mouthed to allow for the flow of the gel.

The applicable subheading for the Sprayette IV sprayer will be 8424.20.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for simple piston pump sprays. The rate of duty will be 5.7 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the Sd 200 dispenser will be 8424.89.0080, (HTS), which provides for other mechanical appliances for projecting, dispersing or spraying liquids. 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.
