RE: Tariff classification of 3 utility wax candles with twisted wire grips from China.

Dear Mr. Williams:

     In your letter dated August 20, 2007 you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your sample is being returned.

Style # CI001 3-Safe-2-Lite Candles with Sure-Grips set consists of 3 white utility candles (4.5”L x 0.7”D) with twisted metal wire grips. A twisted wire is wound 7/8” around the bottom of each candle and extends 3/4” beyond the candle, to allow attachment by twisting into the inside bottom of a carved pumpkin. The candle wax consists of 62% palm oil and 38% paraffin wax. The 3 candles with grips come in a clear plastic blister pack with printed cardboard backing. The wax candles impart the essential character of the set.

The applicable subheading for the 3 utility wax candles with twisted wire grips in retail packing will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty will be free.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
