RE: The tariff classification of Model AMO-3CL (Sony 90mm Magneto Optical Disk Cleaning Kit) from Japan.

Dear Mr. Ventura:

In your letter dated March 10, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The prospective import, Model AMO-3CL is a cleaning kit. The kit is designed to be used to clean 3.5 inch magneto optical disk. The kit is composed of a plastic case, a plastic disk holder with a rotating knob, a package containing 5 cleaning cloths, staticide cleaning fluid and cleaning instruction. The components of this kit are put in a set for retail sale.

The Model AMO-3CL cleaning kit will be imported and sold as a complete set. Based on use, the cleaning preparation would convey the essential character of the set, (GRI 3 (b).

The applicable subheading for the Model AMO-3CL will be 3402.20.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for preparations put up for retail sale:... containing any aromatic or modified aromatic surface-active agent. The rate of duty will be 6.1 percent ad valorem.

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.
