RE: The tariff classification of dehumidifiers from Taiwan

Dear Mr. Spatarella:

In your letter dated August 6, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is portable room dehumidifiers. The dehumidifiers contain a fan, but do not have provision for directly affecting the temperature of the room. The models listed are WDH-210B, WDH-210H, WDH-101B, WDH-101P, WDH-168H and WDH-185H. They range in weight from 12 kg to 18 kg. It is the opinion of this office that the items are more specifically provided for as domestic appliances.

The applicable subheading for the dehumidifiers will be 8509.80.0095, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for electromechanical domestic appliances, with self-contained electric motor, other, other. The rate of duty will be 4.2 percent ad valorem.
