Dear Mr. Letson:

In your letter dated April 3, 2008 you requested a tariff classification ruling. Descriptive literature was submitted.

The articles in question are identified as the “Artic Vent”, “Retro-Line/Heat-Line”, “Paladin” and “Heat-Line EXT”. The Artic Vent is plumbing vent stack incorporating an electric heating element and is used in artic climates to prevent ice blockage within the vent. The Retro-Line/Heat-line and Heat-Line are immersion heating cable sets designed for insertion into water pipes to provide freeze protection. The Paladin is a heating cable set designed to prevent icing on roofs and in rain gutters. Based on the information made available the subject heaters are of a kind normally used in the household.

The applicable subheading for the Artic Vent and the Paladin will be 8516.79.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other electrothermic appliances. The rate of duty will be 2.7 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the Retro-Line/Heat-line and Heat-Line will be 8516.10.0080, HTSUS, which provides for other water heaters and immersion heaters. The rate of duty is free.
