In your letter dated November 16, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client, Scimed Life Systems, Inc.

The stent is an expandable metal tube which may be surgically implanted into heart vessels in order to support the vessel walls, and maintain healthy blood flow.

The applicable subheading for the stent will be 9018.39.0050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for syringes, needles, catheters, cannulae, and the like. The rate of duty will be .8 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty will be Free, effective January 1, 1999.

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