RE: The tariff classification of a decorative night-light from China.

Dear Ms. Marcoux:

In your letter dated June 28, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The subject merchandise, based on the submitted information, is a decorative night-light of plastics, which is referred to as the “Lava Night Light” (item number 50380). This night-light is stated to measure approximately 7 inches in height by 1 inches in diameter overall. It consists of a translucent bottle-like body, containing green liquid and silver glitter, with a silver-colored cone-shaped top and a hollow cone-like base. There is an opening at the bottom of the base for the insertion of a light fixture. This fixture, which contains an incandescent light bulb, incorporates an on/off switch as well as an electric plug. It is stated that the glitter will swirl through the green liquid when heated by the light.

The applicable subheading for this decorative night-light will be 9405.40.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electric lamps and lighting fittings, other than of base metal. The rate of duty will be 3.9 percent ad valorem.

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 the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Michael Contino at 646-733-3014.
