Dear Ms. Rifkin:

In your letter dated August 12, 1996, on behalf of your client, NMB Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item at issue is known as a tape guidance sub-assembly. The unit consists of a machined aluminim sleeve, approximately 1/2 inch long and 1/4 inch in diameter, that contains two miniature radial ball bearings. The item is used in a tape drive storage system for personal computers. The sleeve is mounted onto support pins of a tape guidance trolly assembly, where it functions as a guide pulley for the magnetic tape.

The applicable subheading for the sleeve/bearing assembly will be 8483.50.9080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other, flywheels and pulleys, other. The rate of duty will be 4.5 percent ad valorem.
