Dear Mr. Asta:
In your letter dated May 2, 1991, on behalf of Ron Gordon Associates,
you requested a tariff classification ruling.
The sample you submitted is a coffee mug with an electrothermic heating
The applicable subheading for the electrothermic coffee mug will be
8516.79.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which
provides for other electrothermic appliances. The rate of duty will be 5.3

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the

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.
