RE: The tariff classification of vehicle parts from Japan

Dear Ms. Peach,

In your letter dated April 3, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items concerned are a Differential (Part # 41100-RCL-J05) and a Final Driven Gear (Part # 41233-RCL-010).

Both parts are components of a vehicle Front-Differential Unit or Assembly, which allows the tires of a vehicle to spin at different speeds when making turns.

The applicable classification subheading for the Differential (Part # 41100-RCL-J05) and a Final Driven Gear (Part # 41233-RCL-010) will be 8708.99.6890, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Parts and accessories of motor vehicles : Other parts and accessories: Other: Other: Other: Other parts for power trains: Other”. 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 of the United States and the accompanying duty rates are provided on the World Wide Web at http://ww.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.
