RE: The tariff classification of an auto emergency light from Hong Kong and China.

Dear Ms. Webster:

In your letter dated November 12, 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a plastic, oval-shape, magnetic auto emergency light, style number 27306, which measures approximately 3.5 inches in height by 2.5 inches in width at its widest dimension. It possesses a swivel spotlight and amber flasher which are activated by two top "on-off" switch mechanisms, in addition to a magnetic base and self-contained 12 foot electrical cord that is designed to be inserted into the auto's cigarette lighter. It is noted that this article is stored in a vinyl storage case.

The applicable subheading for the auto emergency light, style number 27306, will be 9405.40.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electric lamps and lighting fittings. The rate of duty will be 3.9 percent ad valorem.

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 transaction.
