RE: The tariff classification of a Natural Beauty Set from China.

Dear Ms. Haines:

In your letter dated June 26, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a “Natural Beauty Set,” Style WM-2025, consisting of one wooden bath brush measuring approximately 10 inches in length, one wooden nail brush, and one mesh bath sponge. The items are packed in a clear PVC pouch with a snap closure.

We find that the above-described items comprise, for tariff purposes, “goods put up in sets for retail sale” with the essential character imparted by the brushes.

Your sample is being retained for official purposes.

The applicable subheading for the Natural Beauty Set will be 9603.29.4090, HTS, which provides for toothbrushes, shaving brushes, hair brushes, nail brushes, eyelash brushes and other toilet brushes for use on the person... other: valued not over 40 cents each, other. The rate of duty will be 0.2 cents for each piece in the set plus 7% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Lawrence Mushinske at 212-637-7061.
