RE: The tariff classification of unequipped cabinets from Sweden.

Dear Mr. Lane

In your letter dated October 12, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items to be imported are unequipped cabinets, part numbers BFM 901 042/3 and BFM 901 042/4. Essentially an empty rack, an unequipped cabinet does not contain any telecom functional equipment, whereas an equipped cabinet would include telecom functional equipment such as magazines, printed circuit boards, transceivers, and cooling fans. The metal cabinets are made up of various parts; doors, mounting sets, earthing set, nuts, screws and angle bars. These cabinets are designed to meet the increasingly stringent demands for disturbance immunity, heat dissipation, flexibility of layout and maintainability. The metal cabinet is designed for placement on the floor or ground and will be used to house telephone switching or radio base station equipment. You have submitted descriptive and illustrative information for our review.

The applicable subheading for the unequipped cabinets, part numbers BFM 901 042/3 and BFM 901 042/4 will be 9403.10.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Other furniture and parts thereof: Metal furniture of a kind used in offices, 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 Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
