The applicable subheading for the motor assembly (part # 196-036) will be 8501.10.6020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Electric motors: Motors of an output not exceeding 37.5 W: Of 18.65 W or more but not exceeding 37.5 W: AC”. The rate of duty will be 2.8%.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
