It’s housing is made of cardboard and measures approximately 13” x 20” x 1 ¼ “. The essential character of the product is imparted by the carbon filter.

The applicable subheading for the carbon air filter will be 8421.39.8015, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Filtering or purifying apparatus for gases: Other: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be free.
