RE: The tariff classification of vacuum cleaner parts from Taiwan or China

Dear Ms. Garcia:

In your letter dated August 4, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise consists of three plastic parts designed specifically for use in wet/dry vacuums. The handle extension, measuring 20.5 inches [52 cm] and 17.5 inches [44.5 cm] in length, is made in Taiwan of polypropylene. The elbow hose adaptor, measuring about 9.5 inches [24 cm] in length, with an angle of 1500, is made in Taiwan of polypropylene. The hose adaptor, measuring about 4 inches [10.4 cm] in length, is made in China of flexible PVC.

The applicable subheading for the vacuum cleaner parts will be 8509.90.1530, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for parts, other, of wet/dry vacuums. The rate of duty will be 2 percent ad valorem.
