RE: The tariff classification of a portable electric lamp from China.

Dear Ms. Marcoux:

In your letter dated July 12, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The subject merchandise, based on the submitted information, is a portable electric lamp, which is referred to as the “Smart Candle” (sku number 50220). It consists of a cylindrical frosted-glass holder measuring approximately 4 ¾ inches in height by 2 ½ inches in diameter. This holder contains a removable, battery-operated plastic candle-like lamp, measuring about 3 inches in height, which when activated is designed to simulate real candlelight.

The applicable subheading for this portable electric lamp will be 8513.10.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other portable electric lamps designed to function by their own source of energy. The rate of duty will be 3.5 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.
