RE: The tariff classification of the “Rocket Air Blower” from China.

Dear Mr. Anderson:

In your letter dated August 12, 2005, on behalf of H.P. Marketing Corp., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample was provided with your letter. The Rocket Air Blower consists of a natural rubber blower or bladder with a plastic air tube tip. It is designed for cleaning items such as computer and musical keyboards, photo and video equipment, and other optical, communication and musical equipment, through the use of air. When the rubber blower is squeezed, a burst of air is forced through the plastic tip. This burst of air disperses dust and other matter lodged in items such as keyboards. As you requested, the sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for the Rocket Air Blower will be 4016.99.3500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of vulcanized rubber other than hard rubber: other: of natural rubber: 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 Joan Mazzola at 646-733-3023.
