The submitted sample is a battery operated solid state electronic personal countdown timer measuring approximately 3" x 2 1/4" with a liquid crystal display. The timer can countdown from 15 hours and 59 minutes to zero. At zero time, an audible alarm is sounded.

The applicable subheading for the LCD digital timer will be 9106.90.55, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other: Apparatus for measuring, recording or otherwise indicating intervals of time, with clock or watch movements, battery powered: With opto-electronic display. The rate of duty will be 3.9% on the apparatus plus 5.3% on the battery.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Stanley Schwartz at 212-466-5895.
