Dear Mr. Paciaffi:

In your letter dated March 2, 2000, on behalf of Cressi Sub USA, you requested a tariff classification ruling. No sample was submitted, but detailed descriptive literature was supplied. Your request for a classification ruling on the Cressi GX1 Console and Cressi GX1 Air/Nitrox Computer will be answered in a separate ruling.

The items are Styles Air, Safety 108, Safety 104, Safety 102, Aquapro 6 and Aquapro 5 Buoyancy Compensator Jackets. The jackets are used during underwater diving.
