Background

In the Aug. 18, 2021, Customs Bulletin and Decisions, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is reclassifying network adapters used to connect computers to Wi-Fi networks as machines for the reception, conversion, and transmission or regeneration of voice, images, or other data under HTSUS 8517.62.0090 (duty-free) rather than as switching and routing apparatus under HTSUS 8517.62.0020 (duty-free). CBP explains that these items do not perform switching or routing themselves and instead rely on an external switching or routing device. 

Ruling HQ H316155 will revoke ruling NY N301141 to reflect this change, effective with respect to goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 17.

For more information on how to seek or utilize classification and other rulings, please contact attorney Deb Stern at (305) 894-1007 or via email.
