RE: The tariff classification of a steel dish from the Philippines

Dear Mr. Andrews:

In your letter dated March 25, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is a round steel dish with fluted edge and a tin punched star design on its face (item number 108521). The dish measures approximately 5.5 inches in diameter. In your letter, you describe the item as a base for a candle. However, the dish is not principally designed for holding a candle, and in our opinion can be used for various other purposes in the household.

The applicable subheading for the dish will be 7323.99.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for table, kitchen or other household articles, of iron or steel, other, other, not coated or plated with precious metal, other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem. Articles classifiable under subheading 7323.99.9060, HTS, which are products of the Philippines are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.

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 James Smyth at 212-466-2084.
