Receipt of Domestic Interested Party Petition Concerning the Tariff Classification of Wickless Wax Objects
Document Number: E9-31352
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-01-05
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has received a petition submitted on behalf of a domestic interested party requesting the reclassification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) of certain wickless wax objects from China. Currently, these objects are classified as ``Molded or carved articles of wax'' under subheading 9602.00.40, HTSUS. The petitioner contends that the proper classification for these wickless wax objects is in subheading 3406.00.00, HTSUS, as candles. While the 2009 duty rates of both these subheadings is free, petitioner claims that the importers of these products are using this classification as a means of circumventing a dumping order that has been placed on petroleum wax candles from China. This document invites comments with regard to the correctness of the current classification.
