In your letter dated March 21, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling for AMO® Endosol® (Balanced Salt Solution) which you have stated will be used during ophthalmic surgery and surgical procedures of ears, nose, and throat requiring a physiological irrigant. The subject product contains no bacteriostat or antimicrobial agent and is intended for use only as a single-dose or short procedure irrigant.

The rate of duty will be 5 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
