Per our telephone conversation on February 13, 2008, this ruling is being issued to correct Customs Ruling Number N016668, dated September 28, 2007. A complete, corrected ruling follows.

In your letter dated August 27, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of TMD Friction, Inc. of Dublin, Virginia.

The item concerned is a Disc Brake Pad Set, which you have identified as Model 24 JM NO. The Set is composed of a black/grey asbestos pad fitted to a black metal plate; it measures approximately 7 inches in length, 2 inches in width and 1 inch in height.

The applicable classification subheading for the Disc Brake Pad Set (Model 24 JM NO) will be 8708.30.5040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Parts of motor vehicles : Brakes parts thereof: For other vehicles: Mounted brake linings”. The rate of duty will be 2.5%.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States and the accompanying duty rates are provided on the World Wide Web at http://ww.usitc.gov /tata/hts/.

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