RE: The tariff classification of an automotive headlight connector from Germany

Dear Mr. Restar:

In your letter dated November 24, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

As indicated by the submitted descriptive literature, the headlight connector consists of an electrical socket for a halogen headlight lamp. Two electrical leads with connectors are attached to the socket for connection to the other components in the vehicle's electrical system.

The applicable subheading for the automotive headlight connector will be 8536.61.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for lamp holders. The rate of duty will be 3.2 percent ad valorem. For merchandise entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after January 1, 1999, the rate of duty will be 2.7 percent ad valorem.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 David Curran at 212-466-5680.
