RE: The tariff classification of a Vascular Compression Machine

from the United Kingdom.

Dear Ms. Coker:
In your letter dated August 20, 1992 you requested a tariff

classification ruling on behalf of Kendall Healthcare Products

Co., Mansfield, Massachusetts.
The Vascular Compression Machine consists of an electrically

operated impulse generator, a mains lead, tubing, foot pads,

retaining slipper and carrying case. This apparatus is used in

the treatment and prevention of vascular diseases. It operates

on the principle that by putting pressure on the deep veins in

the sole of the foot blood can be forced up the leg back to the

heart. This is accomplished by applying an inflatable pad

against the bottom of the foot and using the impulse generator to

inflate and deflate at regular intervals.
The applicable subheading for the complete vascular

compression system will be 9018.90.7060, Harmonized Tariff

Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for electro-

medical instruments and appliances and parts and accessories

thereof... other. The duty rate will be 4.2 percent.

Your inquiry does not provide enough information for us to

give a classification ruling on the foot pads, the retaining

slipper and the air supply tubing when imported separately. Your

request for a classification ruling should include samples and a

statement on material composition.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section

177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry

documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the

documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be

brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the
