TARIFF NO.: 9030.33.0040

Mr. Michael E. Roll

RE: The tariff classification of a 5kV Analogue/Digital Insulation Tester from an Unknown Country

Dear Mr. Roll:

In your letter dated May 11, 2007 for Alcatel Submarine Networks you requested a tariff classification ruling. No sample was provided.

“Per the spec sheets you attached, its ‘basic accuracy’ is plus or minus 5 percent of the reading in ohms. The resistance measurement of the insulation is the electrical quantity that checks that the insulation is not defective.”

We agree that the applicable subheading for the BM11D will be 9030.33.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for "other" instruments and apparatus for measuring or checking voltage, current or resistance, without a recording device. The general rate of duty will be 1.7 percent ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on 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 J. Sheridan at 646-733-3012.
