RE: The tariff classification of a Plastic Spray Fan - Battery Operated from Taiwan

Dear Mr. Rosbach:

In your letter dated October 18, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The unit is designed to provide a cooling stream of air, coupled with an occasional mist of water. The fan operates on 2 AA batteries, which are not included.
