Dear Mr. Ackerman:

In your letter dated January 15, 2002, on behalf of Micro Contacts, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The duty rate will be Free.

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 646-733-3017.
