RE: The tariff classification of heat packs and heated mirrors from Australia and Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Courtney:

In your letter dated January 31, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample provided is a self-adhesive strip of conductive material 350mm long and 160mm wide, used to de-mist a mirror. Thin copper material runs along either length of this strip. An electric power cord is attached to the copper. The Mistfree Heater Pack, when attached to a mirror and plugged in, raises the temperature of the mirror 7 to 10 degrees C.

The Mistfree Beauty Mirror is a glass mirror and plastic frame containing the heater pack.
