RE: The tariff classification of Light-Up Magnetic Screwdriver from Taiwan or China.

Dear Mr. Epstein:

The handle incorporates a magnetized, telescoping shaft and a small battery power light to illuminate the tool. Each bit, measuring approximately one inch, is stored in a molded plastic housing located in the handle. The sample will be returned as per your request.

The applicable subheading for the interchangeable tool holder with screwdriver bits will be 8207.90.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other interchangeable tools, and parts thereof: Other: Other: Not suitable for cutting metal, and parts thereof: For handtools, and parts thereof. The rate of duty will be 4.3% ad valorem.
