RE: The tariff classification of parts of an elastic physical training set from China.

Dear Mr. Ng:

In your letter dated October 22, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You are requesting the tariff classification on two items which are described as parts of an elastic physical training set. The first part, item 2498, is called a door attachment. This part will serve as an anchor point on an indoor door, and the rubber tubing of the elastic training apparatus will connect to this piece. The user will pull the rubber tubing, engaging in a muscle resistance exercise. The door attachment is constructed of a 100% polypropylene webbing with an acrylic rod. The second part, item 2499, which consists of two pieces, is described as an exercise cuff. This part, used in a pair, will be attached to the rubber tubing. The user will wear the cuffs on the wrists. Rubber tubing will be attached to each cuff, and the rubber tubing will act as resistance when the user tries to pull both hands apart. The exercise cuffs are made of a 100% polypropylene webbing with a 100% nylon fabric lining.

The applicable subheading for the parts of the elastic physical training apparatus will be 9506.91.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Other: Articles and equipment for general physical exercise, gymnastics or athletics; parts and accessories thereof...Other." The rate of duty will be 4.6 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 tom McKenna at 212-466-5475.
