Per the sample, it is packaged sterile, for single use. It is labeled as a Suture Removal Kit, Item 100124. It contains “1 Forceps, 1 Scissors, 2 Gauze Sponges, 1 PVP Prep Pad and 1 Alcohol Prep Pad.”

The applicable subheading for the Suture Removal Kit will be 9018.90.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “other” instruments and appliances used in the medical, surgical or veterinary sciences. 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 J. Sheridan at 646-733-3012.
