This merchandise, which functions in the capacity of neon lighting, is imported in rolls measuring 30 to 150 feet long with designative-cutting marks and without connection and installation materials.

The applicable subheading for this unfinished electric lighting system will be 9405.40.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), 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.
