RE: The tariff classification of metal escutcheons from Columbia.

Dear Mr. Ackerman:

In your letter dated June 8, 1990 on behalf of Von Duprin Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Your descriptive literature indicates that you will be importing escutcheons that will be used as door trim. The imported merchandise is a bronze metal plate which surrounds the keyhole mechanism and door handle.

The applicable subheading for the bronze escutcheons will be 8302.41.9015, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for base metal mountings, fittings, suitable for doors. The rate of duty will be 5.1 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 8302.41.9015, HTS, which are products of Columbia are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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.

Area Director
