RE: The tariff classification of workbenches from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Bonace:

In your letter dated July 20, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is the Portable Workbench & Vise, product code WBNCHI3. It is constructed of a work top consisting of two moveable wooden pieces that can also act as a vise, two side braces with plastic crank handles, two bottom cross bars, two sets of leg frames, four rubber foot pads and four plastic insert chucks. The workbench is imported unassembled. It has no metal working edge. Except for the wooden top and several minor pieces, the item is made of steel. The item is regularly sold to home craftsmen for projects in and around the house.

The applicable subheading for the workbench will be 7323.99.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for table, kitchen or other household articles, of iron or steel, other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.

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.
