RE: The tariff classification of Internet appliances from Turkey

Dear Mr. Monahan:

In your letter dated June 8, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is described in your letter as an Internet appliance. There are two basic SKU ‘s. The first is a 15” CRT monitor keyboard. The second is a 10” LCD screen with keyboard. They each have the following features in common:

X86 processor capable of operating systems System BUS logic, compatible with LINUX, MS, CE, QNX operating systems .28 mm dot pitch, 16 bit color at 75 Hz

The difference between the two products is the screen; one is a 15” CRT monitor, the other is a 10” LCD screen.

The applicable subheading for the Internet appliances will be 8517.50.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Electrical apparatus for line telephony or line telegraphy, including line telephone sets with cordless handsets and telecommunication apparatus for carrier-current line systems or for digital line systemsOther apparatus, for carrier-line systems or for digital line systems: Telegraphic: For carrier-current line systems.
