RE: The tariff classification of mattress components (brass air vents) from China, Taiwan and Korea

Dear Mr. Vogland:

In your letter dated January 14, 1998. you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The articles to be imported are Mattress Components: Brass Air Vents: During the construction of the mattress, brass Air Vents are installed in the border material of the mattress to allow air to escape in and out of said mattress. The "male" part is the one with the small holes in the end cap portion. The inner side sleeve slips through a hole in the border material. When this sleeve protrudes through the interior part of the border material, a brass ring is attached to the sleeve and crimped to fix it to the border material.

The applicable subheading for the mattress components will be 7419.99.5050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of copper: Other.... Other....The rate of duty will be 1 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 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 Melvyn Birnbaum at 212-466-5487.
