RE: The tariff classification of candle holders from Mexico.
Dear Ms. Dugan:
In your letter dated July 22, 1993, you requested a tariff
classification ruling. Samples are being returned as requested.
The samples submitted are two candle holders consisting of a
iron stand, measuring approximately 7.25 inches high, and two bell-shape
glass holders, styles 133 SW I and 133 SW D. It is noted that either one of
these holders can be inserted into the top portion of the stand.
The applicable subheading for these candle holders will be 9405.50.4000,
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for
other non-electrical lamps and lighting fittings. The duty rate will be 7.6
percent ad valorem.
Articles classifiable under subheading 9405.50.4000, HTS, which are
products of Mexico, are entitled to duty free treatment under the Generalized
System of Preferences (GSP) upon compliance with all applicable regulations.
This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the
Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents
filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been
filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the
Customs officer handling the transaction.
