The merchandise is an electric mug warmer set, item no. G00901. The set consists of a 120 volt, 23 Watt warmer unit and a ceramic mug. It will be used to maintain the temperature of a hot beverage. The set is retail packaged for sale. In our opinion, the items constitute a set for tariff purposes.

The applicable subheading for the set will be 8516.79.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electrothermic appliances of a kind used for domestic purposes, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 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.
