Dear Mr. Douglas:

This ruling is being issued to correct Customs Ruling Number R01193, dated January 5, 2005. The ruling letter erroneously indicated the country of origin as China,.instead of Poland (the correct country of origin). A complete corrected ruling follows.

In your letter dated December 15, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

This is a requisite to maintaining the bromine or chlorine at the proper concentration, and the pH and alkalinity within the recommended ranges. The test strips are supplied in plastic containers (50 strips/container), which are labeled with directions for use.

The applicable subheading for the subject products will be 3822.00.5090, Harmonized Tariff of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Diagnostic or laboratory reagents on a backing, prepared diagnostic or laboratory reagents, whether or not on a backing, other than those of heading 3002 or 3006: Other: Other.” The rate of duty will be free.

This merchandise may be subject to the requirements of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), which is administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
