The products to be imported are alloy steel (Grade 4130, 4140, 4150, 4340, 8620, 8630, etc.) forged tube connectors produced by ring rolling. These tube connectors or couplings have been processed after the forging operation by polishing.

The applicable tariff provision for the alloy steel forged tube connectors or couplings will be 7307.99.50, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for tube or pipe fittings (for example, couplings, elbows, sleeves), of iron or steel, other, other, other. The general rate of duty will be 5.1 percent ad valorem. Effective January 1, 1998, the general rate of duty will be 4.7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 CFR 177).

A copy of the 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 Paula Ilardi at 212-466-5476.
