RE: The tariff classification of castings from China.

Dear Mr. Gilham:

In your letter dated May 21, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The subject items are described as follows:

1) C-Clamps - model 270, used to hold beams. 2) Rolls - model 485, used as a pipe roller support. 3) Ceiling Flanges - model B3199, used as a ceiling attachment. 4) Split Pipe or Tubing Clamps - model B3198H, used as pipe hangers. 5) Hex-Nut Brackets - model D3M, used as a circular bracket.

The applicable subheading for items 1-4 listed above will be 7326.90.8585, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of iron or steel, other. The duty rate will be 4.6% ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the Hex-Nut Brackets will be 7318.19.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other threaded articles of iron or steel. The duty rate will be 5.7% ad valorem.

Consideration was given to classifying this product under subheading 7325.10.00 or 7325.99.10, HTS, as you have suggested. However, the items shown in your literature do not appear to be cast iron as they apparently have been machined and threaded.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 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.
