RE: The tariff classification of Christmas tree light sets from China.

Dear Mr. Wyatt:

In your letter dated May 29, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

It is stated that there is 12 inches of space between each cover. It has been determined that the subject novelty light set is "of a kind" used for a Christmas tree.

The applicable subheading for this Christmas tree light set will be 9405.30.00, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for lighting sets of a kind used for Christmas trees. The rate of duty will be 8 percent ad valorem.
