CBP Publishes Revocation of Two Ruling Letters On the Classification of Wafer Probe Cards

October 5, 2010

In the September 29, 2010 Customs Bulletin & Notice of Decisions CBP issued a notice of revocation of two letter rulings related to the classification of wafer probe cards. 

In NY K89734 and NY K82192, CBP classified wafer probe cards in subheading 8536.90.80, HTSUS, as “Electrical apparatus … for making connections to or in electrical circuits” …at 2.7%. After review, CBP now believes that the merchandise is properly classified in subheading 8536.90.40, HTSUS, as “Electrical apparatus … for making connections to or in electrical circuits … for a voltage not exceeding 1,000 V: Other apparatus: … wafer probers,” duty free.

Importers have up to 6 months (180 days) from the date of liquidation of an entry of wafer probe cards classified under 8536.90.80, HTSUS, at 2.7%, to file a protest and receive a refund of duties deposited at the higher rate, and may file a post entry amendment for any unliquidated entry.
