RE: The tariff classification of an anchor and a setting tool from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Grieszmer:

In your letter dated March 2, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The subject items are described as heavy duty drop-in anchors and setting tools. They are made of low carbon steel. For the internally threaded anchor to be used, first a hole is drilled into a solid wall . Then the drop-in anchor is driven flush with the surface of the wall. The anchor is then expanded with the use of the setting tool.

The applicable subheading for the anchor will be 7318.19.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for screws, bolts, nuts, coach screws, screw hooks, rivets, cotters, cotter pins, washers and similar articles, of iron or steel: threaded articles: other. The duty rate will be 5.7% ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the setting tool will be 8205.59.5560, HTS, which provides for other handtools not elsewhere specified or included; base metal parts thereof...of iron or steel: other. The duty rate will be 5.3% 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 this 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 Kathy Campanelli at 212-637-7025.
