RE: The tariff classification of a round candle from China.

Dear Ms. Mobley:

In your letter dated January 31, 2001, you request a tariff classification ruling.

The sample that you submit, Style #C-5415A, Round Candle, is a white colored pillar candle that measures approximately 3” in height and 3” in diameter and is wrapped in red colored nylon and decorated with a yellow colored nylon bow and artificial leaves and berries.

Your sample is being returned upon your request.

The applicable subheading for Style #C-5415A, Round Candle, will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty will be free.

Many candles are covered by antidumping proceedings and, therefore, may be liable for antidumping duties. A list of AD/CVD proceedings at the Department of Commerce and their product coverage can be obtained from the DOC website at: http://ia.ita.doc.gov. Written decisions regarding the scope of AD/CVD orders are issued by the Import Administration in the Department of Commerce and are separate from tariff classification and origin rulings issued by Customs.

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 F. Cantone at 212-637-7018.
