RE: The tariff classification of automotive parts from Japan

Dear Ms. Peach,

In your letter dated July 5, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items in question are two shrouds used in the manufacturer of Honda automobiles. The first shroud, identified as an Air Conditioner Shroud (Part # 38615-P1E-A00), is constructed of steel and is used in the Honda Odyssey to, “protect elements of the air conditioner subassembly, including the fan and exterior condenser, from damage during operation of the vehicle.”

The applicable classification subheading for the Air Conditioner Shroud will be 8415.90.8045, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for parts of automotive air conditioners. The rate of duty will be 1.4%.

The second item is identified as a Radiator Shroud (Part # 19015-RBB-003) and is one of several components that make up the radiator cooling system used in certain Acura automobiles. The shroud is constructed of plastic and “protect(s) the radiator fan (to) facilitate continued operation of the radiator.

The applicable classification subheading for the Radiator Shroud (Part #19015-RBB-003) will be 8708.91.7550, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Partsof motor vehicles : Other parts: Radiators and parts thereof: Parts: For other vehicles: Other ”. The rate of duty will be 2.5%.
