RE: The tariff classification of a generator from China

Dear Ms. Roberts,

In your letter dated August 22, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Marrick Enterprises, Inc. of Spring, Texas.

The item concerned is the Solar-Powered Generator. It is a generator powered by sunlight that generates four volts and conducts two amperes of electricity.

The applicable classification subheading for the Solar-Powered Generator will be 8501.31.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Electric generators : Other DC generators: Of an output not exceeding 750 W: Generators”. The rate of duty will be 2.5%.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent Harmonized Tariff Schedule and the accompanying duty rates are provided on the 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 Richard Laman at 646-733-3017.
