RE: Classification of a gel wax candle making kit with glass containers from China.

Dear Mr. Maher:

In your letter dated September 12, 2003, on behalf of Rose Art Industries, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your sample is being returned.

The wax gel is cut into slices with the knife, then cut into shapes with the molds, and finally placed around a wick inside the glass containers. The wax candles impart the essential character of the set.

The applicable subheading for the Style #1387 Rainbow Gel Candles kit will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty is free.

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