RE: The tariff classification of replacement pool filter cartridges, from China.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated January 20, 2005, which was a follow-up to an earlier inquiry, where we requested additional information, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Two representative samples were submitted which were identified as product #938823.

The items in question are replacement filter cartridges for use in motorized pool filters. These cartridges are cylindrical in configuration and measure about 4ΒΌ" in diameter and 4" in depth. They both consist of nonwoven filtering elements which are composed of extruded polypropylene man-made fiber filaments, which have been folded into a circular accordion shape. These filtering elements are held in place on both sides with plastic end caps.

The applicable subheading for the filtering elements will be 5911.90.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for textile products and articles, for technical use. The rate of duty will be 3.8 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 Deborah Walsh at 646-733-3044.
