This classification is free of duty.

Importations of this merchandise may be subject to the provisions of Section 133 of the Customs Regulations if it

further information prior to importation.

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

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
