RE: The tariff classification of LED modules from China

Dear Ms. Martino:

In your letter dated February 12, 1996 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

These modules contain light emitting diodes (LED) and other electronics and will be incorporated into highway message displays. It is our understanding that these displays are capable of providing messages as well as displaying graphics and animation.

The applicable subheading for the LED modules will be 8543.89.9090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electrical machines and apparatus,..., not specified or included elsewhere in Chapter 85. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
