RE: The tariff classification of Rayex 160, 220, and SX from Switzerland

Dear Mr. Accardi:

In your letter dated June 17, 2003, for Zumbach Electronics, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling. No samples were submitted.

You forwarded an 8 page flyer regarding the Zumbach Rayex 160, 220, and SX. They are for the x-ray measurement of complete cross-sections of cables and other products using x-ray beams. The measuring accuracy is stated to be typically .001 inch or better. Harmonized System Explanatory Note I-C to 90.22 indicates that it includes x-ray devices used in various industries for checking or measuring the thickness of materials.

The applicable subheading for the Rayex apparatus will be 9022.19.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “other” apparatus based on the use of x-rays. The rate of duty will be free.

You also forwarded a 4 page flyer regarding the Zumbach USYS 100. It is described as a Hi-Tech Industrial Diameter Data Acquisition System.

We are returning your request on behalf of the USYS 100 for a classification ruling, and any related samples, exhibits, etc., because we need additional information in order to issue a ruling. Please submit the additional information indicated below:

3. What would typically be input via the Numeric Keyboard? What would those numbers be used for? 4. Regarding Bar and Shaft Measurement, if the 100’s Control Pulses output were connected to a polisher, for example, what would typically be the ultimate goal, and how would the 100 contribute to achieving it?

Also include a statement as to whether classification advice has been sought from a Customs officer; and if so, from whom, and what advice was rendered, if any.

When this information is available, you may wish to consider resubmission of your request regarding the USYS 100.
