The applicable subheading for the “Mars Light and Sound Multi-function Lantern/AM/FM Radio” will be 8527.19.5035, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Radiobroadcast receivers capable of operating without an external source of power, including apparatus capable of receiving also radiotelephony or radiotelegraphy: Other: Other: Other: FM only or AM/FM only. The duty rate will be 3 percent ad valorem

As you have requested, we are returning your sample.

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 Michael Contino at 212-637-7039.
