RE: The tariff classification of signal generators from Germany and Japan

Dear Mr. Ohlmann:

In your letter dated March 31, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

As indicated by the submitted information, the four models of signal generators are identified as SME03, SMIQ02, SMIQ03, and R3561L. Each model produces an analog or digital signal which is used in testing to verify the accuracy of receiver devices.

The applicable subheading for the SME03, SMIQ02, SMIQ03 and R3561L signal generators will be 8543.20.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for signal generators. The rate of duty will be 2.9 percent ad valorem.

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 David Curran at 212-466-5680.
