Dear Mr. Jordahl:
In your letter dated September 16, 1996 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

B) HNV3975-A Spacer: Used between PCB and heat sink
C) CNV1335-A Clamper: Holds wires in place on PCB

The applicable subheading for the aforementioned amplifier parts will be 8518.90.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "...audio-frequency electric amplifiers...parts thereof." The rate of duty will be 4.9%.
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 Eileen S. Kaplan at 212-466-5673.
