RE: The tariff classification of a Trocar from England

Dear Mr. Fura:

In your letter dated June 14, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The trocar to be imported consists of a sharp pointed cannula with an obturator. The trocar is to be used in the insertion of prescribed drug pellets under the skin as for example in hormone replacement therapy.

The applicable subheading for the trocar will be 9018.39.0050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for syringes, needles, catheters, cannulae and the like; parts and accessories thereof... other. 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.
