RE: The tariff classification of an automotive Shaft Assembly Steering Lower from Liechtenstein

Dear Ms. Vrabel:

You submitted a photo as well as engineering drawings of an automotive Shaft Assembly Steering Lower. This assembly is used to connect the steering column to the steering gear in order to steer the automobile. The shaft translates torque input by the driver. All of these parts are lower intermediate shafts and perform the same function with different sizes. All parts are parts of the intermediate shaft, which has a "U" joint.

The applicable subheading for the Shaft Assembly Steering Lower will be 8708.99.7330, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of headings 8701 to 8705: Other parts and accessories: Other: Other: Other: Parts for steering systemsSteering shaft assemblies incorporating universal joints. 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.
