RE: The tariff classification of joint mobilization machines from West Germany.

Dear Mr. Milne:

In your letter dated November 30, 1989, on behalf of Thera Kinetics Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The literature you submitted shows five devices: Artromot-E for elbow joint, Artromot-RE for shoulder joint rotation and elevation, Artromot-S for shoulder joint, Artromot-K for knee and hip joint, and Artromot-SP for ankle joint. These electro-mechanical devices are used for passive exercising of the joints following an operation.

The applicable subheading for the joint mobilization machines will be 9019.10.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for mechano-therapy appliances and massage apparatus; parts and accessories thereof. The rate of duty will be 4.2 percent.

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 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.
