RE: The tariff classification of an ionic deodorizer from China

Dear Mr. Morse:

In your letter dated September 29, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Meijer Distribution of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The item concerned is the Ionic Freshener Hanger (see below), Item #FND11708. It is a gray, hard plastic hanger with arms that move forward or “hang” straight out to the sides. There are sixteen holes at the end of the arms of the hanger at both the top and bottom. On the bottom of the body of the hanger is a compartment for inserting a battery. The item is approximately 17 inches in width with arms outstretched and 2 inches in height. There is a black on-off button at the back of the top of the hanger body.

The purpose of this item is to generate negative ions and ozone to deodorize clothing hung on it or shoes slipped onto it.

The applicable subheading for the Ionic Freshener Hanger will be 8543.89.9695, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Electrical machines and apparatus, having individual functions, not specified or included elsewhere ...: Other machines and apparatus: Other: Other: Other: Other: Other.
