Dear Mr. Mundhra:

In your letter dated January 10, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise under consideration is identified as the 14 LED Table Lamp, Item Number FL347. This lamp is a battery operated desk lamp constructed of plastic and steel measuring approximately 9 inches tall. The base of the lamp is a plastic dome measuring approximately 3 inches in diameter at its widest point. Embedded in the top of the base is an on-off switch; the base also houses a compartment for 3 “AAA” batteries. Rising from the base is an adjustable neck constructed of a thin, flexible steel tube. Attached to the end of this tube is a round dome-like lamp housing made of plastic containing 14 Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) under a clear lens.

The applicable subheading for the 14 LED Table Lamp, Item Number FL347, will be 9405.20.8010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Lamps and lighting fittings: Electric table, desk, bedside, or floor-standing lamps: Other: Household.” The general rate of duty will be 3.9 percent ad valorem.
