In your letter dated March 11, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

As indicated by the submitted sample and descriptive literature, the “MasterSwitch”, identified as item # AP9212, is a peripheral device for use in conjunction with various automated systems to allow programmable control of electrical outlets. It consists of a metal housing with eight electrical outlets, and a built-in management card that is designed to interface with the automated system to facilitate the programming.

The applicable subheading for the “MasterSwitch”, item # AP9212, will be 8537.10.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other boards, panels, and other bases, , for electric control or the distribution of electricity, : For a voltage not exceeding 1,000 V. The duty rate will be 2.7 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 8537.10.9060, HTS, which are products of India may be entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations. The GSP is subject to modification and periodic suspension, which may affect the status of your transaction at the time of entry for consumption or withdrawal from warehouse.
