RE: Tariff classification of three scented figure shaped wax candles from China

Dear Ms. Robinson:

In your letter dated September 11, 2003 you requested a tariff classification ruling for three scented bakery type figure shaped wax candles: a yellow cupcake shaped wax candle (3-3/4”D x 2-1/2”H); a yellow fruit tart shaped wax candle (4-1/2”D x 1-1/2”H); and a brown cinnamon roll shaped wax candle (3-3/4”D x 1-3/4”H). Each candle is said to contain more than 50% petroleum and 2% percent fragrance oil.

The applicable subheading for all three scented figure shaped wax candles 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.

Candles from China may be subject to anti-dumping duties administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Import Administration. You may contact them at 14th St. and Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20230, phone (202) 482-0162.

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 control number indicated above should be provided with entry documents filed at time merchandise is imported. For any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Frank Cantone at 646-733-3038.
