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

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated January 13, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted is a Christmas tree light set, item number 992868, that consists of an electrical wire harness possessing 100 light sockets with 100 miniature light bulbs.

Although it is stated to be used on the deck or patio, on shrubs or trees, or under a canopy, the subject article has been determined to be of the class or kind of lighting set that is principally designed for use on a Christmas tree.

The applicable subheading for this Christmas tree light set, item number 992868, 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.

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 George Kalkines at 212-637-7073.
