RE: The tariff classification of a garden care tool kit from China

Dear Ms. Soto:

In your letter dated June 20, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling, on behalf of your client, Delstar Security & Wireless, Hallandale, FL. The sample that you submitted with your request will be returned to you as requested.

You have described your sample as a 10 piece Garden Care Kit with bonus garden gloves, which includes the following components:

● 1 Transplanter
● 1 Cultivator
● 1 Grass shears
● 1 Spray mister
● 1 Mini trowel
● 1 Mini cultivator
● 1 Mini weeder
● 1 plastic storage case – manufactured of molded plastic and is specially fitted on the interior to hold the items. ● 1 pair of woven man-made fiber (MMF) gloves with PVC grip dots covering the palm an fingers.

The item is determined to be a GRI 3 set. The essential character of the set is imparted by the hand tools for working in the garden, classifiable in heading 8201. All of the tools have metal working edges. The applicable subheading for the 10-piece garden care kit with its fitted storage case is classifiable under subheading 8201.90.6000, HTS, which provides for handtools of the following kinds and base metal parts thereof: other handtools of a kind used in agriculture, horticulture or forestry, and parts thereof: other. The rate of duty will be free.

The MMF gloves fall within textile category designation 631. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

The glove’s fiber content and care labeling requirements are covered under the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act. We suggest that you contact the Federal Trade Commission, Division of Enforcement, 6th and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20508, for that information.

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 Kathy Campanelli at 646-733-3021.
