RE: The tariff classification of nativity scene from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Peterson:

In your letter dated November 5, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is identified as item #22685-8, Holy Family Nativity. The nativity scene is made of clear acrylic and it measures 6" x 3" x 6 1/2". This item is made up of a nativity scene on the front with a small circular groove on the back. The groove holds a votive candle whose sole purpose is to illuminate the nativity scene. The nativity scene is usable with or without the votive candle.

The applicable subheading for the acrylic nativity scene with candleholder will be 9505.10.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for festive, carnival or other entertainment articles,...parts and accessories thereof: articles for Christmas festivities and parts and accessories thereof: nativity scenes and figures thereof. The rate of duty will be free.

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 Alice Masterson at 212-466-5892.
