RE: The tariff classification of a wool sampling tool from the United Kingdom

Dear Mr. McColl:

In your letter dated January 12, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The product to be imported is a steel handtool consisting of a tube 24" long and 7/8" in diameter with a locking ring. The tool's handles are 4-3/4" long and collection cup is 4-1/2" wide and 2-1/4" deep with a lip to attach plastic sampling bags. Wool samples are extruded using a wooden rod . This article is manufactured in the United Kingdom by SGS Wool Testing Services International, Ltd.

The applicable subheading for the multipurpose tool will be 8205.59.5560 Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other iron or steel handtools not elsewhere specified or included. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

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