RE: The tariff classification of a Worklight from China

Dear Mr. Dominguez:

In your letter dated July 23, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of a Multi-purpose 12-volt 4-in-1 Worklight intended for use with a motor vehicle. The worklight is made of plastic and operates by plugging the cord into the motor vehicle's cigarette lighter or 12 volt accessory receptacle. The light has a plastic hook so it can be hung, as well as a tripod for floor mounting. You state that the Worklight is "ideal for roadside repairs, garages and emergencies".

The applicable subheading for the Worklight will be 8512.20.2040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Electrical lighting or signaling equipmentÂof a kind used for cycles or motor vehicles: Other lighting or visual signaling equipment: Lighting equipmentÂFor the vehicles of subheading 8701.20 or heading 8702, 8703, 8704, 8705 or 8711. The rate of duty will be Free.

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 Robert DeSoucey at 212-637-7035.
