RE: The tariff classification of a “Personal Grooming Kit” from China.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated May 20, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, item #929163, is a “Personal Grooming Kit” consisting of a pair of scissors, nail grooming supplies, sewing supplies, a razor, razor blades, a mirror, a lint brush and a comb, all contained in a zippered vinyl case. The items are held in place in individual elastic loops. The case has one zipper that opens continuously on three sides enabling it to lie flat. The composition of the item is 35% stainless steel, 25% acetyl butyistyrene and 40% polyurethane.

The applicable subheading for the Personal Grooming Kit 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% 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 646-733-3036.
