RE: The tariff classification of Toilet Travel Set from China

Dear Mr. Panzer:

In your letter dated February 24, 1992, on behalf of your client, SBD Group, Inc, you requested a classification ruling.

The prospective imports are two bags having an exterior which is made of 100 percent cotton and a lining of PVC.

The Toilet Travel Set possesses two (2) clear plastic side compartments of equal size, each with a zippered closure. The overall dimensions are approximately 10 inches in length, 3 inches wide at the bottom tapering to approximately 3/4 inch at the top, with a height of approximately 6 3/4 inches. This bag has two snaps for closing the top as well as two textile handles for carrying.

Inside one of the compartments in a separate plastic container are six empty plastic containers capable of holding personal toilet articles such as soap, perfume, powder, toothbrush, toilet water, make-up, etc.

The applicable subheading for the Toilet Travel Set will be 9605.00.000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for travel sets for personal toilet, sewing or shoe or clothes cleaning. The duty rate will be 8.1 percent ad valorem.

The question of classification for the 2nd bag marked "Exhibit A" a toilet travel bag, is being referred to the Office of Regulations and Rulings, U.S. Customs Service Headquarters, 1301 Constitution Ave, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20229. A ruling will be issued to you from that office.

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.
