RE: The tariff classification of search mirrors from Canada.

Dear Mr. Connors:

In your letter dated December 7, 1993, on behalf of Security Mirror Industries Ltd., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The search mirror consists of an aluminum pole with a flashlight and detachable plastic mirror at the end. The pole, when fully extended, is 57 1/2 inches in length. The search mirror enables allows law enforcement and security organizations to see around, over, under and into obstacles, without exposing themselves to unnecessary danger. As you requested, your sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the search mirror will be 3926.90.9590, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

Goods classifiable under subheading 3926.90.9590, HTS, which have originated in the territory of Canada, and are imported on or prior to December 31, 1993, will be entitled to a 2.1 percent ad valorem rate of duty under the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

Effective January 1, 1994, with the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), preferential tariff treatment for goods under the FTA will be discontinued.

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.
