RE: The tariff classification of a travel bar kit from China.

Dear Ms. Greener:

In your letter dated November 14, 2003, you requested a ruling on tariff classification.

The sample you provided is the Travel Bar Kit, item 022-1040. The kit consists of one collapsible shot glass, two small flasks, one pair of ice tongs and one stir stick. All the items are in a fitted leather case. In your letter, you suggest that the item should be classified in heading 7323, HTS, as a household article; however, the kit is intended to be used outside the home. We also note that the sample is not legally marked with the country of origin. Before you import, we recommend that you contact the import specialist at your local port for advice on proper marking.

The applicable subheading for this product will be 7326.90.3500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of iron or steel, other, other, containers of a kind normally carried on the person, in the pocket or in the handbag. The general rate of duty will be 7.8 percent ad valorem.

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

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 James Smyth at 646-733-3018.
