RE: Tariff classification of wax candles poured in wax containers from China.

Dear Ms. Jones:

In your letter received February 23, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling. PC5292 and PC5293 candle sets each consist of a wax candle poured in a cylinder shaped wax container (968 grams) on a wood pedestal with wreath of polyester leaves and plastic flowers or berries attached to a ring of metal wire. The wax contains less than 50% petroleum. The candle imparts the essential character of each set.

The applicable subheading for each set with a candle poured in a wax container, pedestal and wreath will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), 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.
