RE: The tariff classification of insulated electrical cable from Malaysia

Dear Ms. Lawler:

In your letter dated May 1, 2001, on behalf of Xircom, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

As indicated by the submitted samples, there five items in question, identified as part 180-0021-003A; 170-0728-003B; 180-0022-003B; 170-0460-002B, and 150-2641-001. The cable is fitted with connectors at each end and is used in conjunction with various adapters/modems for laptop computers. An examination of the cable indicates that they are of the type that is used for telecommunication purposes. Part 150-2641-001 is a kit that also contains 3.5” HD diskettes in addition to the cable.
