RE: The tariff classification of decorative ceramic articles and lamps from Haiti.

Dear Mr. Coupet:

In your letter dated January 26, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The subject merchandise consists of various ornamental ceramic articles which are stated to be decorated pots and plates, flowerpots, figurines and masks, in addition to ceramic lamps.

The applicable subheading for the decorative ceramic articles will be 6913.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other ornamental ceramic articles. The duty rate will be 6.2 percent ad valorem.

Articles classifiable under subheading 6913.90.5000, HTS, which are products of Haiti are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

Your inquiry does not provide enough information for us to give a classification ruling on the ceramic lamps. Your request for a classification ruling should include a representative sample and/or descriptive literature depicting this article as well as a complete material breakdown by weight and value for all of the lamp components.

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 George Kalkines at 212-466-5794.
