RE: The tariff classification of Beeswax Candles from China

Dear Mr. Eoff:

In your letter dated June 20, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The samples submitted consist of a white candle and a yellow candle. Each candle measures approximately 8 1/2 inches in length and 3/4 inch in diameter and is made by rolling a corrugated honeycomb wax sheet around a textile fabric wick. The candles are made of 95 to 100% beeswax and contain no paraffin wax.

The applicable subheading for the Candles will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for candles, tapers, and the like. The rate of duty will be 3.5 percent ad valorem.

Candles made in China of 95 to 100% beeswax and contain no paraffin wax are not within the scope of the antidumping duty order on petroleum wax candles from China.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist V. Gualario at 212-466-5744.
