RE: The tariff classification of coffee filters from Germany and Switzerland

Dear Ms. Waldner:

In your letter dated March 18, 1994, on behalf of Herman Dodge and Sons, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is a coffee filter made of either stainless steel or nickle foil. It is gold-toned, washable and re-usable. The filter comes in both a cone and basket shape. The filter is designed for use in drip coffee makers.

The applicable subheading for the filter will be 8516.90.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other eletro-thermic appliances of a kind used for domestic purposes, parts [of coffee or tea makers], other. 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.
