RE: The tariff classification of a vibrating device from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Shostak:

In your letter dated May 23, 1990, on behalf of JB Research Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Based on the information you have furnished, the vibrating device consists of ten motors mounted on steel plates with connectors, cable assembly to connect the motors, AC adaptor (14 volt) with cord, and a dedicated hand control unit with cord. This vibrating device will be marketed in the United States under the trade name "Relaxor". It will be sold to manufacturers who will incorporate the device into chairs, mattresses and similar articles.

The applicable subheading for the "Relaxor" vibrating device will be 9019.10.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for mechano-therapy appliances and massage apparatus: parts and accessories thereof. 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.
