RE: Amendment to NY Ruling 813877 dated September 12, 1995 Paragraph referring to 9817.00.96, HTS, only

Dear Mr. Langenskiold:

This letter is being issued to amend NY Ruling 813877 of 9-12- 95 only insofar as the paragraph referring to the applicability of 9817.00.96, HTS.
We are reproducing below the original paragraph (penultimate paragraph on page 2) followed by the corrected paragraph.

Original Paragraph

Based on the information in the brochure, these products are not specially designed for the use or benefit of the blind or other physically or mentally handicapped persons, but are intended for the care of patients in general. Therefore, they are not eligible for Duty Free treatment under subheading 9817.00.96. If you disagree, we suggest that you submit to this office any additional information and documentation concerning the design and use of these products, and request a separate ruling on this matter.

Corrected Paragraph

In regard to the applicability of
9817.00.96, HTS, the provision for articles specially designed for the handicapped, additional information will be needed to establish the eligibility of these products. We must in fact determine if these articles are dedicated for use by the handicapped or are generally used in hospitals for transient disability. We suggest you request a separate ruling.

All other information in the original ruling letter (NY 813877) remains the same.

This amendment is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this supplement and the original 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.

If you have any questions pertaining to this matter, please contact National Import Specialist Jacques Preston of this office at (212) 466- 5488.
