RE: The tariff classification of a "Nylon Travel Kit" [style #40F91-15] from South Korea.

Dear Ms. Dugan:

In your letter dated May 2, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective import consists of a nylon travel kit with two zippered compartments and a loop handle on one end. One compartment is empty and the other contains the following items:

1. a travel toothbrush 5. a razor
2. tweezers 6. a nail file
3. a toe nail clipper 7. a shoe horn
4. a manicure clipper

The applicable subheading for the travel set will be 9605.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel sets for personal toilet, sewing or shoe or clothes cleaning (other than manicure and pedicure sets of heading 8214). The rate of duty will be 8.1 percent ad valorem.

Each set should be marked as clearly, legibly and indelibly as possible with the proper country of origin.

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.
