RE: The tariff classification of actuator-operated air dampers

Dear Mr. Schaefer:

In your letter dated April 17, 1996, on behalf of your client, Johnson Controls, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items at issue are a series of galvanized steel air dampers. The dampers are designed to be operated by various mechanical actuators for the purpose of controlling air pressure, room temperature, smoke or flame movement, or just the amount of air entering, leaving or flowing through a building. The dampers consist of a metal frame with adjustable louvers.

The applicable subheading for the air dampers will be 8481.80.9050 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for taps, cocks, valves and similar appliances, other than manually operated or check, other. The rate of duty will be 3 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 or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Karl J. Riedl at 212-466-5493.
