RE: Tariff Classification of the Pulsar LED Lighting Fixtures

Dear Ms. Norrell:

This is in reference to your request, on behalf of Pulsar Light of Cambridge Limited, received November 13, 2006, for a binding ruling on the tariff classification of the five Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting fixtures under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The merchandise consists of a family of LED lighting fixtures offering color changing possibilities used in entertainment industry such as theme parks, cinemas, clubs, stadiums and television studios. In the architectural industry the wide range of lighting can enhance building facades, water and focal displays. The LEDs are powered by DC or AC voltage depending on the product. They are not used for message displays or any interactive advertising displays.

After reviewing your request, it has come to our attention that certain published rulings need to be reconsidered so that we do not have in force rulings that may be inconsistent with our current views. We intend to initiate a notice and comment procedure pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1625(c) to revoke or modify one or more rulings. In this manner we believe we can best meet our obligations regarding the sound administration of the HTSUS and other customs and related laws. See 19 C.F.R. 177.7(a).

We invite you to comment on the relevant proposed modification or revocation, which we will publish soon in an upcoming issue of the Customs Bulletin, available for viewing at www.cbp.gov. The notice and comment procedure typically takes 60 days from the date of publication of the proposed change before a final modified or revoked ruling is published and, other than as provided in 19 C.F.R. 177.12(e), 60 additional days before the change becomes effective.

On publication of the final ruling, if you still wish you may resubmit your request for a prospective ruling to CBP, National Commodity Specialist Division, One Penn Plaza, 10th Floor, New York, NY 10119. The above referenced file is administratively closed. If you require further information, please feel free to contact Allyson Mattanah, to whom this matter has been assigned, at (202) 572-8784.
