RE: The tariff classification of a fan wheel and fan cowls from

Dear Ms. Brown:

In your letter dated June 18, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items in question are described as a fan wheel, part number 077 121 303 A, a fan cowl, part number 441 121 197 D, and a dual fan cowl, part number IHM 121 207 A. Descriptive information and technical drawings were submitted.

The fan wheel is a component of a belt-driven, automotive coolant fan. The fan wheel is not a complete fan, but rather an axial fan blade designed to be mounted, by means of a coupling, onto a vehicle’s water pump and driven by the vehicle’s engine. The fan cowl and dual fan cowl are molded plastic housings, which are designed to enclose the blade(s) of the coolant fans and direct the flow of air to the vehicle’s radiator.

The applicable subheading for the fan wheels and cowls will be 8414.90.1080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other parts of fans. The rate of duty will be 4.7 percent 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 Kenneth T. Brock at 212-637-7026.
