RE: The tariff classification of the Swing Hat from China and Macau

Dear Mr. Lord:

In your letter dated June 3, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You are requesting the tariff classification on a product that is described as a Swing Hat, a training device used in the sport of golf. The golfer would utilize the Swing Hat to improve his/her swing. This end (swing training) is accomplished through the use of the ear-piece and the electronics. The Swing Hat sets a tempo for the golfer to match and it will also provide feedback when the golfer’s head moves into the incorrect position. The correct classification will be in Chapter 95 of the HTS as other golf equipment. The item must be marked with the country of origin in a permanent manner either on the item itself, or on the retail package. The sample will be returned, as requested.

The applicable subheading for the Swing Hat will be 9506.39.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for golf clubs and other golf equipment; parts and accessories thereof: other...other. The rate of duty will be 4.9 % 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 Tom McKenna at 646-733-3025.
