RE: The tariff classification of a candleholder kit from China

Dear Mr. Trout:

In your letter dated March 14, 2001, on behalf of Graphex, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is called a Complete Patriotic Luminaria Kit. The kit consists of the following items:

The kit is a set for tariff purposes with the lumabases imparting the essential character.

The applicable subheading for the luminaria kit will be 9405.50.4000, HTS, which provides for other non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings other. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.

This product may be subject to antidumping duties or countervailing duties.
