RE: The tariff classification of a magnetic Induction device from Spain

Dear Mr. Hill:

In your letter dated February 9, 1994 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Ruvic, L.V. A sample was submitted with your request.

The magnetic induction device is a plastic receptacle containing two sets of magnets separated from the central chamber by a housing. A removable funnel attached to a plastic tube inserted into the chamber on one end contains a spout screwed onto the tube on the other end. Water poured through the funnel is exposed to the magnetic field created by the magnets causing a structure and orientation change in the molecules contained in the liquid and exits the device through the spout.

The applicable subheading for the magnetic induction device will be 8421.21.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for filtering or purifying machinery and apparatus for water. The rate of duty will be 3.9 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.
