RE: The tariff classification of a “Woodland Cinnamon” Incense Sticks from China

Dear Ms. Peirce:

In your letter dated February 13, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample of the incense sticks was submitted with your inquiry and will be retained by this office. The sticks, measuring 4 inches in length, are composed of 50% wood powder, 45% gluing wood powder, 3% fragrance and 2% pigment. The scent from the incense is released by lighting the stick. When burned, a fragrance was detected.

The applicable subheading for scented incense sticks will be 3307.41.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Preparations for perfuming or deodorizing rooms, including odoriferous preparations used during religious rites: “Agarbatti” and other odoriferous preparations which operate by burning.. The rate of duty will be 2.4 percent ad valorem.

Perfumery, cosmetic and toiletry products are subject to the requirements of the Food and Drug Cosmetic Act administered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Questions regarding FDA requirements may be addressed to the Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, Maryland 20857.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
