RE: The tariff classification of a medical laser imager from Japan

Dear Mr. Kechian:

In your letter dated January 23, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Konica Medical Corporation. The item, Model Li-21, is a medical laser imager. It is used to print onto laser imaging film medical diagnostic data which is acquired in computed tomography (CT), mmagnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medical (NM), digital subtraction angiography (DSA), digital fluorography (DF), workstation medical imaging (WS), ultrasound (US), and computed radiology (CR). Although you state that the Li-21 will be used "in connection with CAT-Scan Processors," the manufacturer's literature indicates that it is equally capable of use with the other systems listed above.

The applicable subheading for the Li-21 medical laser imager will be 9033.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for accessories (not specified or included elsewhere in this chapter) for machines, appliances, instruments or apparatus of chapter 90. The rate of duty will be 4.7 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 or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist EricFrancke at (212) 466-5669.
