HS code 8708.95.90 – An airbag is a vehicle safety device. It is an occupant restraint system consisting of a flexible fabric envelope, or cushion, designed to inflate rapidly during an automobile collision. Its purpose is to cushion occupants during a crash and provide protection to their bodies when they strike interior objects such as the steering wheel or a window.
It should be noted that the other elements of the airbag supplemental restraint system (e.g., sensors, sensor brackets, airbag monitor assembly, and monitor bracket) are classified elsewhere in the Nomenclature, each in their own right. This also includes the wiring assemblies, which connect the airbag module assemblies to the airbag monitor and sensors.
