RE: The tariff classification of steel tubing from Mexico.

Dear Mr. Burris:

In your letter dated June 23, 1995 on behalf of Sunbeam Outdoor Products, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The products to be imported are Grades 1008 and/or 1010 square welded tubes in cut lengths. The tubes measure 1" x 0.033", 1.5" x 0.048" and 1.5" x 0.0395". The tubes are made to ASTM Specification A 513, the Standard Specification for Electric-Resistance-Welded Carbon and Alloy Steel Mechanical Tubing. After importation these tubes will be punched with holes and painted; some of the tubes will also be formed. They will ultimately be used on barbecue grills.

The applicable tariff provision for the steel tubes will be 7306.60.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other tubes, pipes and hollow profiles (for example, open seamed or welded, riveted or similarly closed), of iron or steel, other, welded, of noncircular cross section, having a wall thickness of less than 4 mm, of iron or nonalloy steel. The general rate of duty will be 7.2 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.
