RE: The tariff classification of LED candle lights from China.

Dear Ms. Ramsey:

In your letter dated August 22, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The submitted sample will be returned to you.

At their apexes, the springs curve into a hanging hook. The LED lights are powered by individual button cell CR2032 batteries, which are included with the product, and can be activated by rotating the base.

The applicable subheading for the Set/3 Spring Hook LED Lights, item number 62760, will be 9405.40.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Lamps and lighting fittings: Other electric lamps and lighting fittings: Other.” The general 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).
