RE: The tariff classification of Variable Resistors from Germany

Dear Mr. Donahoe:

In your letter dated November 15, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is described in your letter as variable resistors. The NS-25/B2R is a fluid variable resistor designed for low-cost automotive and industrial applications. The resistors consist of a ceramic case that is bonded with glass solder onto a silicone substrate forming an air tight, hermetic seal. There are eight measuring electrodes and one common electrode that are deposited onto the substrate via a thin film process. Three samples of the variable resistors accompanied your binding ruling request and have been retained by this office.

The applicable subheading for the Variable Resistors will be 8533.40.8070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Electrical resistors: Other variable resistors, including rheostats and potentiometers: Other, Other: Other.” The rate of duty 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 Linda M. Hackett at 646-733-3015.
