RE: The tariff classification of unground bearings from Japan

Dear Mr. Seely:

In your letter dated October 6, 1994, on behalf of your client, Fujikin of America, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items in question will be marketed as "Purerings". The Purerings are considered to be unground ball bearings. They will be used as part of a UJR fitting (face seal mechanical fitting) that is tightened and installed in stainless steel tubing. Their primary function is to reduce tightening torque in the tube fittings and improve the efficiency of the sealed tubing in which they are used.

The applicable subheading for the Purerings will be 8482.10.5004, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for ball bearings, other, unground bearings. The rate of duty will be 11 percent ad valorem.

It is the opinion of this office that the instant bearing would not be subject to anti-dumping (ADA) or countervailing duty (CVD) margins under the current Department of Commerce ADA and CVD findings on bearings, as published on May 15, 1989. If you desire a binding scope determination on the applicability of either anti-dumping or countervailing duty to your product, please write directly to the Office of Compliance, Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C.

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.
