RE: The tariff classification of a "Golf Accessory Kit" from China.

Dear Mr. Hernandez:

In your letter dated March 12 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling for a "Golf Accessory Kit".

The sample submitted, identified as a "Golf Accessory Kit" consists of a nylon fitted case containing an "Analog" watch, lead pencil, golf score card, spike cleaner and golf tees. The case is a container as described in GRI-5(a), therefore it is classified with the contents. The value of the case is prorated over the contents. For classification purposes the items are not considered to be a set and will be classified accordingly. Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the golf score card will be 4911.99.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other printed matter, printed on paper in whole or in part by a lithographic process. The rate of duty will be 0.2 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the spike cleaner will be 8205.59.8000, HTSUSA, which provides for handtools, other, other, other. The rate of duty will be 4 percent ad valorem.

The applicable for the golf tees will be 9506.39.0080, HTSUSA, which provides for "Golf clubs and other golf equipment, parts and accessories thereof": Other. The rate of duty will be 4.9 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the pencil will be 9609.10.0000, HTSUSA, which provides for pencils and crayon, with leads encased in a rigid sheath. The rate of duty will be 14 cents per gross plus 4.3 percent ad valorem.
