RE: The tariff classification of a Converter Cone from Canada

Dear Ms. Gaunt:

In your letter dated May 17, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample and five pictures of a Converter Cone (Part Number 994196) which is a prototype for the 2003 Chevrolet Blazer. It is an integral part of the exhaust system to improve emissions on ignition. The converter cone is welded in place between the conventional type manifold runners and the outlet. The exhaust gases pass through the catalytic converter, which heats up and lowers emissions before they flow through the converter cone and into the exhaust system.

The applicable subheading for the Converter Cone will be 8708.92.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories for the motor vehicles of headings 8701 to 8705: Other parts and accessories: Mufflers and exhaust pipes: For other vehicles. The rate of duty will be 2.5% 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 Robert DeSoucey at 212-637-7035.
