RE: The tariff classification of Magnetic Resonance Imaging System from Japan.

Dear Mr. Schneider:

In your letter dated September 25, 1989, on behalf of Shimadzu Precision Instruments, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging System is a medical diagnostic apparatus which produces pictures of the internal organs of a patient. It consists basically of a superconducting magnet, radio transmitters and receivers, data processing unit, and television monitors.

The applicable subheading for the Magnetic Resonance Imaging System will be 9018.19.8050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electro-diagnostic apparatus. 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.
