In your letter dated August 6, 2007 you requested a tariff classification ruling. Descriptive literature and specifications were provided.

The pump is made of aluminum with a cast iron cylinder sleeve and includes two mufflers and two high efficiency intake filters.

The applicable subheading for the twin cylinder air compressor pump will be 8414.80.1615, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for reciprocating air compressors exceeding 746 W but not exceeding 4.48 kW. The rate of duty is free.

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 Kenneth T. Brock at 646-733-3009.
