Dear Mr. Davies:

In your letter dated February 8, 2007 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Lowe’s.

The articles in question are described as parts for a hand-operated kitchen faucet. Part number 120001 is a steel lock plate used to secure a cover plate to the faucet body. Part number 009003 is a plastic mounting nut used to secure a gasket to the cover plate. Part number 009008 is a mounting nut used to secure a spray holder to the sink on which the faucet is mounted. Part number 009018 is a plastic coupling nut used to connect water supply lines to the faucet. Descriptive information and samples were submitted

The applicable subheading for the steel lock plate, part number 120001 will be 8481.90.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for parts of iron or steel for hand-operated taps, cocks, valves and similar appliances.
