RE: The tariff classification of rubber automotive parts from Japan.

Dear Ms. Cook:

In your letter dated April 28, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample provided with your letter is an automotive door glass run channel composed of compact EPDM rubber flocked with polyester on one side and reinforced with a metal strip. The door glass run channel is punched throughout one surface with cutouts that remain attached at one end and are lifted up to form hooks. The sample represents Part Numbers 68171-35120 (8901000), 68173-35030 (8901100), 68174-35020 (8901200), which are said to be the same except that one channel is straight, the second curves to the right, and the third curves to the left. As you requested, the sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for the door glass run channels will be 4016.93.1050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of vulcanized rubber other than hard rubber, other: gaskets, washers and other seals: of a kind used in the automotive goods of chapter 87, other. The rate of duty will be 2.5 percent ad valorem

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 Joan Mazzola at 646-733-3023.
