RE: The tariff classification of a body magnet set from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Weinberg:

In your letter dated June 5, 2000, on behalf of Publishers Clearing House, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

As indicated by the submitted sample, the body magnet set, marketed as Magtek Power Magnetics for Total Body Therapy, is an eight-piece set of magnetic body wraps consisting of the following:
one lumbar/abdomen wrap with 16 three-quarter inch diameter magnets inserted under a fabric mesh covering
four square fabric components containing magnets for use on various areas of the body such as the wrist or thigh

- three textile bands that are for use with the square fabric components

The applicable subheading for the Magtek Power Magnetics for Total Body Therapy will be 8505.19.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other permanent magnets. The rate of duty will be 4.9 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 David Curran at 212-637-7049.
