RE: The tariff classification of stainless steel flexible tubing from Italy.

Dear Mr. Zupito:

In your letter dated May 12, 2006, on behalf of your client Nippon Express Co., you requested a tariff classification ruling. A representative sample was submitted with your request.

The product to be imported is described as stainless steel cable for use in a power steering assembly. This flexible metal tubing is imported on spools in material lengths. After importation, the tubing is cut to a specific length, encased in plastic and fitted with end caps or metal fittings. This protective jacket will ultimately be used to house a power steering hose which carries hydraulic fluid to the power steering pump.

The applicable subheading for the stainless steel flexible tubing will be 8307.10.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for flexible tubing of base metal, with or without fittings, of iron or steel, other. The rate of duty will be 3.8 percent ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

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 Gloria Stingone at 646-733-3020.
