RE: The tariff classification of a “Thunder/Lightning FX Box” from China

Dear Ms. Davenport:

In your letter dated January 8, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

As indicated by the submitted sample and information, the “Thunder/Lightning FX Box”, identified as style number 12878, is a device that creates the effects of a lightning storm. It consists of a plastic housing with a 3-way switch, a button, a light and a built-in speaker. Depressing the button causes the light to flash and the speaker emits the sound of thunder.

The applicable subheading for the “Thunder/Lightning FX Box”, style number 12878, will be 8543.89.9695, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electrical machines and apparatus, , not specified or included elsewhere in Chapter 85, HTS. The rate of duty will be 2.6 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 646-733-3017.
