RE: The tariff classification of Candles and Porcelain Snuffer Set from China

Dear Mr. Laumann:

In your letter dated August 28, 1997, on behalf of your client, Tsumura International, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

In your literature, you indicate that your client will be importing four fragranced tapered candles measuring approximately 10" in height and 3/4" in diameter and one porcelain snuffer. The candles and porcelain snuffer will be imported packaged together for retail sale in a printed carton with an acetate sleeve. You also state that the candles will be made in Hong Kong and the porcelain snuffer will be made in China.

The essential character of the set as imported for retail sale is that of the candles (GRI# 3(b)).

The applicable subheading for the Candles and Porcelain Snuffer Set 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 2.3 percent ad valorem.

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.
