RE: The tariff classification of a wireless video baby monitor system from China.

Dear Mr. Crago:

In your letter dated January 19, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The camera transmits audio/video signals directly to the receiver/monitor. The receiver incorporates a 1.5-inch screen diagonal TFT LCD color monitor. This provides both video images and voice communication from a remote location. The system is designed for the observation of a child located in a different part of the premises. HQ Ruling 957992 provides guidance in this matter. Classification will be accordingly.
