In your letter dated October 6, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective imports are as follows:

8846 Horror Bleeding Candle- Candles constructed with paraffin wax on the outside and whipped wax on the inside. When lit, the whipped wax flows through holes in the outer shell, creating an interesting effect.

8847 Molded Pumpkin Face with inside Candle.

These are novelty candles for use on Halloween.

The Department of Commerce has determine that novelty candles (Halloween Candles) are not within scope of the antidumping order on the petroleum-wax candles for the People's Republic of China(PRC).

The applicable subheading for the Halloween Candles will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty will be 4.6 percent ad valorem.
