The articles in question are described as gas valves, model numbers 099415 19, 102367 01, and 079060 04.

Model number 079060 04 is a hose regulator assembly comprised of a pressure regulator, a length of hose and fittings. The regulator assembly is used on outdoor gas forced air and convection heaters. Samples were submitted.

The applicable subheading for the regulator assemblies, model numbers 099415 19 and 079060 04, will be 8481.10.0090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other pressure-reducing valves. The rate of duty will be 2 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
