In the Jan. 27, 2021, Customs Bulletin and Decisions, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is reclassifying a plant distillation refining module as machinery for liquefying air or other gases under HTSUS 8419.60.50 (duty-free) rather than as machinery for treating materials by drying under HTSUS 8419.89.9585 (4.2 percent duty). This item consists of interconnected components that include reboilers, condensers, pumps, drums, and interconnected pipes.

Ruling HQ H302168 will revoke ruling NY N300353 to reflect this change.
