Schedule 1 Section 13

“FIRST SCHEDULE (Section 2(1))

BERMUDA NOMENCLATURE AND IMPORT DUTIES

PART I

General rules of interpretation of the Bermuda Nomenclature

Classification of goods in the Bermuda Nomenclature shall be governed
by the following principles.

1. The titles of sections, chapters and sub-chapters are provided for
ease of reference only; for legal purposes, classification shall be
determined according to the terms of the headings and any relative
section or chapter notes and, provided such headings or notes do not
otherwise require, according to the following provisions.

2. (a) Any reference in a heading to an article shall be taken to
include a reference to that article incomplete or unfinished, provided
that, as presented, the incomplete or unfinished article has the essential
character of the complete or finished article. It shall also be taken to
include a reference to that article complete or finished (or falling to be

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

8

classified as complete or finished by virtue of this rule), presented
unassembled or disassembled.

(b) Any reference in a heading to a material or substance shall
be taken to include a reference to mixtures or combinations of that
material or substance with other materials or substances. Any reference
to goods of a given material or substance shall be taken to include a
reference to goods consisting wholly or partly of such material or
substance. The classification of goods consisting of more than one
material or substance shall be according to the principles of rule 3.

3. When by application of rule 2(b) or for any other reason, goods
are, prima facie, classifiable under two or more headings, classification
shall be effected as follows—

(a) the heading which provides the most specific description
shall be preferred to headings providing a more general
description. However, when two or more headings each
refer to part only of the materials or substances
contained in mixed or composite goods or to part only of
the items in a set put up for retail sale, those headings
are to be regarded as equally specific in relation to those
goods, even if one of them gives a more complete or
precise description of the goods;

(b) mixtures, composite goods consisting of different
materials or made up of different components, and
goods put up in sets for retail sale, which cannot be
classified by reference to rule 3(a), shall be classified as
if they consisted of the material or component which
gives them their essential character, insofar as this
criterion is applicable;

(c) when goods cannot be classified by reference to rule 3(a)
or (b), they shall be classified under the heading which
occurs last in numerical order among those which
equally merit consideration.

4. Goods which cannot be classified in accordance with the above
rules shall be classified under the heading appropriate to the goods to
which they are most akin.

5. In addition to the foregoing provisions, the following rules shall
apply in respect of the goods referred to therein—

(a) camera cases, musical instrument cases, gun cases,
drawing instrument cases, necklace cases and similar
containers, specially shaped or fitted to contain a
specific article or set of articles, suitable for long-term
use and presented with the articles for which they are

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

9

intended, shall be classified with such articles when of a
kind normally sold therewith. This rule does not,
however, apply to containers which give the whole its
essential character;

(b) subject to the provisions of rule 5(a), packing materials
and packing containers presented with the goods therein
shall be classified with the goods if they are of a kind
normally used for packing such goods. However, this
provision is not binding when such packing materials or
packing containers are clearly suitable for repetitive use.

6. For legal purposes, the classification of goods in the subheadings
of a heading shall be determined according to the terms of those
subheadings and any related subheading notes and with the necessary
changes to the above rules, on the understanding that only subheadings
at the same level are comparable. For the purposes of this rule the
relative section and chapter notes also apply, unless the context
otherwise requires.

PART II

Special rule of interpretation of the Bermuda Nomenclature

1. Where there exists a more specific description for the
classification of goods in the Harmonized System than in the Bermuda
Nomenclature due to the deletion of certain Harmonized System
subheadings for the purposes of summarization, then the goods are to be
classified under the Bermuda Nomenclature code bearing the same first
four or five digits as the Harmonized System code of the more specific
description.

2. In this Part

"Bermuda nomenclature" means the Harmonized System
nomenclature (including the rules of interpretation and the
Section and Chapter notes thereof) as summarized and
amended and set out in this Schedule;

"Harmonized System" means nomenclature of the International
Convention on the Harmonized Commodity Description and
Coding System done in Brussels on 14th June 1983 as
amended by the Protocol of Amendment to that Convention.".

basis) not exceeding 14 %.

2.- For the purposes of subheading 2701.12, "bituminous coal"
means coal having a volatile matter limit (on a dry, mineral-
matter-free basis) exceeding 14 % and a calorific value limit (on a
moist, mineral-matter-free basis) equal to or greater than 5,833
kcal/kg.

3.- For the purposes of subheadings 2707.10, 2707.20, 2707.30,
2707.40 and 2707.60, the terms "benzol(benzene)","toluol
(toluene)","xylol(xylenes)","naphthalene" and "phenols" apply to
products which contain more than 50% by weight of benzene,
toluene, xylenes, naphthalene or phenols, respectively.

4.- For the purposes of subheading 2710.11, “light oils and
preparations” are those of which 90% or more by volume
(including losses) distil at 210 C (ASTM D 86 method)

PLASTICS AND ARTICLES THEREOF;

RUBBER AND ARTICLES THEREOF

Notes.

1.- Goods put up in sets consisting of two or more separate
constituents, some or all of which fall in this Section and are
intended to be mixed together to obtain a product of Section VI
or VII, are to be classified in the heading appropriate to that
product, provided that the constituents are:

(a) having regard to the manner in which they are put up,
clearly identifiable as being intended to be used together
without first being repacked;

(b) presented together; and

(c) identifiable, whether by their nature or by the relative
proportions in which they are present, as being
complementary one to another.

2.- Except for the goods of heading 39.18 or 39.19, plastics, rubber,
and articles thereof, printed with motifs, characters or pictorial
representations, which are not merely incidental to the primary
use of the goods, fall in Chapter 49.

Chapter 39

Plastics and articles thereof

Notes.

1.- Throughout the Nomenclature the expression "plastics" means
those materials of headings 39.01 to 39.14 which are or have
been capable, either at the moment of polymerisation or at some
subsequent stage, of being formed under external influence

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

178

(usually heat and pressure, if necessary with a solvent or
plasticiser) by moulding, casting, extruding, rolling or other
process into shapes which are retained on the removal of the
external influence.

Throughout the Nomenclature any reference to "plastics" also
includes vulcanised fibre. The expression, however, does not
apply to materials regarded as textile materials of Section XI.

2.- This Chapter does not cover:

(a) Waxes of heading 27.12 or 34.04;

(b) Separate chemically defined organic compounds (Chapter
29);

(c) Heparin or its salts (heading 30.01);

(d) Solutions (other than collodions) consisting of any of the
products specified in headings Nos. 39.01 to 39.13 in
volatile organic solvents when the weight of the solvent
exceeds 50 % of the weight of the solution (heading 32.08);
stamping foils of heading No. 32.12;

(e) Organic surface-active agents or preparations of heading
34.02;

(f) Run gums or ester gums (heading 38.06);

(g) Diagnostic or laboratory reagents on a backing of plastics
(heading 38.22);

(h) Synthetic rubber, as defined for the purposes of Chapter
40, or articles thereof;

(n) Articles of Section XII (for example, footwear, headgear,
umbrellas, sun umbrellas, walking-sticks, whips, riding-
crops or parts thereof);

(o) Imitation jewellery of heading 71.17;

(p) Articles of Section XVI (machines and mechanical or
electrical appliances);

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

179

(q) Parts of aircraft or vehicles of Section XVII;

(r) Articles of Chapter 90 (for example, optical elements,
spectacle frames, drawing instruments);

(s) Articles of Chapter 91 (for example, clock or watch cases);

(t) Articles of Chapter 92 (for example, musical instruments or
parts thereof);

(u) Articles of Chapter 94 (for example, furniture, lamps and
lighting fittings, illuminated signs, prefabricated buildings);

like, pens, propelling pencils).

3.- Headings 39.01 to 39.11 apply only to goods of a kind produced
by chemical synthesis, falling in the following categories:

(a) Liquid synthetic polyolefins of which less than 60 % by
volume disti ls at 300 C, after conversion to 1,013 millibars
when a reduced-pressure distillation method is used
(headings 39.01 and 39.02);

(b) Resins, not highly polymerised, of the coumarone-indene
type (heading 39.11);

(c) Other synthetic polymers with an average of at least 5
monomer units;

(d) Silicones (heading 39.10);

(e) Resols (heading 39.09) and other prepolymers.

4.- The expression "copolymers" covers all polymers in which no
single monomer unit contributes 95 % or more by weight to the
total polymer content.

For the purposes of this Chapter, except where the context
otherwise requires, copolymers (including co-polycondensates,
co-polyaddition products, block copolymers and graft
copolymers) and polymer blends are to be classified in the
heading covering polymers of that comonomer unit which
predominates by weight over every other single comonomer unit.

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

180

For the purposes of this Note, constituent comonomer units of
polymers falling in the same heading shall be taken together.

If no single comonomer unit predominates, copolymers or
polymer blends, as the case may be, are to be classified in the
heading which occurs last in numerical order among those
which equally merit consideration.

5.- Chemically modified polymers, that is those in which only
appendages to the main polymer chain have been changed by
chemical reaction, are to be classified in the heading appropriate
to the unmodified polymer. This provision does not apply to
graft copolymers.

6.- In headings 39.01 to 39.14, the expression "primary forms"
applies only to the following forms :

(a) Liquids and pastes, including dispersions (emulsions and
suspensions) and solutions;

(b) Blocks of irregular shape, lumps, powders (including
moulding powders), granules, flakes and similar bulk
forms.

7.- Heading 39.15 does not apply to waste, parings and scrap of a
single thermoplastic material, transformed into primary forms
(headings 39.01 to 39.14).

8.- For the purposes of heading 39.17, the expression "tubes, pipes
and hoses" means hollow products, whether semi-manufactures
or finished products, of a kind generally used for conveying,
conducting or distributing gases or liquids (for example, ribbed
garden hose, perforated tubes). This expression also includes
sausage casings and other lay-flat tubing. However, except for
the last- mentioned, those having an internal cross-section other
than round, oval, rectangular (in which the length does not
exceed 1.5 times the width) or in the shape of a regular polygon
are not to be regarded as tubes, pipes and hoses but as profile
shapes.

9.- For the purposes of heading 39.18, the expression “wall or
ceiling coverings of plastics” applies to products in rolls, of a

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

181

width not less than 45 cm, suitable for wall or ceiling decoration,
consisting of plastics fixed permanently on a backing of any
material other than paper, the layer of plastics (on the face side)
being grained, embossed, coloured, design-printed or otherwise
decorated.

10.- In headings 39.20 and 39.21, the expression "plates, sheets,
film, foil and strip" applies only to plates, sheets, film, foil and
strip (other than those of Chapter 54) and to blocks of regular
geometric shape, whether or not printed or otherwise surface-
worked, uncut or cut into rectangles (including squares) but not
further worked (even if when so cut they become articles ready
for use).

11.- Heading 39.25 applies only to the following articles, not being
products covered by any of the earlier headings of sub-Chapter
II:

(a) Reservoirs, tanks (including septic tanks), vats and similar
containers, of a capacity exceeding 300 l;

(b) Structural elements used, for example, in floors, walls or
partitions, ceilings or roofs;

(c) Gutters and fittings therefor;

(d) Doors, windows and their frames and thresholds for doors;

(e) Balconies, balustrades, fencing, gates and similar barriers;

(f) Shutters, blinds (including Venetian blinds) and similar
articles and and parts and fittings thereof;

(g) Large-scale shelving for assembly and permanent
installation, for example, in shops, workshops, warehouses;

(h) Ornamental architectural features, for example, flutings,
cupolas, dovecotes; and

(ij) Fittings and mountings intended for permanent installation
in or on doors, windows, staircases, walls or other parts of
buildings, for example, knobs, handles, hooks, brackets,
towel rails, switch-plates and other protective plates.

Subheading Notes.

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

182

1.- Within any one heading of this Chapter, polymers (including
copolymers) and chemically modified polymers are to be
classified according to the following provisions:

(a) Where there is a subheading named "Other" in the same
series:

(1) The designation in a subheading of a polymer by the
prefix "poly" (e.g., polyethylene and polyamide-6,6)
means that the constituent monomer unit or monomer
units of the named polymer taken together must
contribute 95 % or more by weight of the total polymer
content.

(2) The copolymers named in subheadings 3901.30,
3903.20, 3903.30 and 3904.30 are to be classified in
those subheadings, provided that the comonomer units
of the named copolymers contribute 95 % or more by
weight of the total polymer content.

(3) Chemically modified polymers are to be classified in the
subheading named "Other", provided that the
chemically modified polymers are not more specifically
covered by another subheading.

(4) Polymers not meeting (1), (2) or (3) above, are to be
classified in the subheading, among the remaining
subheadings in the series, covering polymers of that
monomer unit which predominates by weight over every
other single comonomer unit. For this purpose,
constituent monomer units of polymers falling in the
same subheading shall be taken together. Only the
constituent comonomer units of the polymers in the
series of subheadings under consideration are to be
compared.

(b) Where there is no subheading named "Other" in the same
series :

(1) Polymers are to be classified in the subheading covering
polymers of that monomer unit which predominates by
weight over every other single comonomer unit. For
this purpose, constituent monomer units of polymers
falling in the same subheading shall be taken together.
Only the constituent comonomer units of the polymers
in the series under consideration are to be compared.

(2) Chemically modified polymers are to be classified in the
subheading appropriate to the unmodified polymer.

189

(a) Unsaturated synthetic substances which can be irreversibly
transformed by vulcanisation with sulphur into non-
thermoplastic substances which, at a temperature between
18 C and 29 C, will not break on being extended to three
times their original length and will return, after being
extended to twice their original length, within a period of
five minutes, to a length not greater than one and a half
times their original length. For the purposes of this test,
substances necessary for the cross-linking, such as
vulcanising activators or accelerators, may be added; the

knitted or crocheted fabrics.

(k) Plain weave

A fabric construction in which each yarn of the weft passes
alternately over and under successive yarns of the warp
and each yarn of the warp passes alternately over and
under successive yarns of the weft.

2.- (A) Products of Chapters 56 to 63 containing two or more
textile materials are to be regarded as consisting wholly of
that textile material which would be selected under Note 2

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

Man-made filaments

Notes.

1.- Throughout the Nomenclature, the term "man-made fibres"
means staple fibres and filaments of organic polymers produced
by manufacturing processes, either :

(a) By polymerisation of organic monomers, such as
polyamides, polyesters, polyurethanes or polyvinyl
derivatives; or

(b) By chemical transformation of natural organic polymers (for
example, cellulose, casein, proteins or algae), such as
viscose rayon, cellulose acetate, cupro or alginates.

The terms "synthetic" and "artificial", used in relation to fibres,
mean : synthetic : fibres as defined at (a); artificial : fibres as
defined at (b).

The terms "man-made", "synthetic" and "artificial" shall have
the same meanings when used in relation to "textile materials".

2.- Headings 54.02 and 54.03 do not apply to synthetic or artificial
filament tow of Chapter 55.

(g) Remelting scrap ingots of iron or steel

Products roughly cast in the form of ingots without feeder-
heads or hot tops, or of pigs, having obvious surface faults
and not complying with the chemical composition of pig
iron, spiegeleisen or ferro-alloys.

(h) Granules

Products of which less than 90 % by weight passes through
a sieve with a mesh aperture of 1 mm and of which 90 % or
more by weight passes through a sieve with a mesh
aperture of 5 mm.

(ij) Semi-finished products

Continuous cast products of solid section, whether or not
subjected to primary hot-rolling; and

Other products of solid section, which have not been
further worked than subjected to primary hot-rolling or
roughly shaped by forging, including blanks for angles,
shapes or sections.

These products are not presented in coils.

(k) Flat-rolled products

Rolled products of solid rectangular (other than square)
cross-section, which do not conform to the definition at (ij)
above in the form of:

- coils of successively superimposed layers, or

- straight lengths, which if of a thickness less than 4.75
mm are of a width measuring at least ten times the
thickness or if of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more are of
a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least
twice the thickness.

Flat-rolled products include those with patterns in relief
derived directly from rolling (for example, grooves, ribs,
chequers, tears, buttons, lozenges) and those which have
been perforated, corrugated or polished, provided that they
do not thereby assume the character of articles or products
of other headings.

Flat-rolled products of a shape other than rectangular or
square, of any size, are to be classified as products of a
width of 600 mm or more, provided that they do not

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

325

assume the character of articles or products of other
headings.

(l) Bars and rods, hot-rolled, in irregularly wound coils

Hot-rolled products in irregularly wound coils, which have a
solid cross-section in the shape of circles, segments of
circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles or
other convex polygons (including "flattened circles" and
"modified rectangles", of which two opposite sides are
convex arcs, the other two sides being straight, of equal
length and parallel). These products may have
indentations, ribs, grooves or other deformations produced
during the rolling process (reinforcing bars and rods).

(m) Other bars and rods

Products which do not conform to any of the definitions at
(ij), (k) or (l) above or to the definition of wire, which have a
uniform solid cross-section along their whole length in the
shape of circles, segments of circles, ovals, rectangles
(including squares), triangles or other convex polygons
(including "flattened circles" and "modified rectangles", of
which two opposite sides are convex arcs, the other two
sides being straight, of equal length and parallel). These
products may:

- have indentations, ribs, grooves or other deformations
produced during the rolling process (reinforcing bars
and rods);

- be twisted after rolling.

(n) Angles, shapes and sections

Products having a uniform solid cross-section along their
whole length which do not conform to any of the definitions
at (ij), (k), (l) or (m) above or to the definition of wire.

Chapter 72 does not include products of heading 73.01
or 73.02.

(o) Wire

drills, of which the greatest external dimension of the cross-
section exceeds 15 mm but does not exceed 52 mm, and of
which the greatest internal dimension does not exceed one
half of the greatest external dimension. Hollow bars and
rods of iron or steel not conforming to this definition are to
be classified in heading 73.04.

2.- Ferrous metals clad with another ferrous metal are to be
classified as products of the ferrous metal predominating by
weight.

3.- Iron or steel products obtained by electrolytic deposition, by
pressure casting or by sintering are to be classified, according to
their form, their composition and their appearance, in the
headings of this Chapter appropriate to similar hot-rolled
products.

Subheading Notes.

1.- In this Chapter the following expressions have the meanings
hereby assigned to them:

(a) Alloy pig iron

Pig iron containing, by weight, one or more of the following
elements in the specified proportions:

- more than 0.2 % of chromium

- more than 0.3 % of copper

- more than 0.3 % of nickel

- more than 0.1 % of any of the following elements :
aluminium, molybdenum, titanium, tungsten (wolfram),
vanadium.

(b) Non-alloy free-cutting steel

Non-alloy steel containing, by weight, one or more of the
following elements in the specified proportions:

- 0.08 % or more of sulphur

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

327

- 0.1 % or more of lead

- more than 0.05 % of selenium

- more than 0.01 % of tellurium

- more than 0.05 % of bismuth.

(c) Silicon-electrical steel

Alloy steels containing by weight at least 0.6 % but not
more than 6 % of silicon and not more than 0.08 % of
carbon. They may also contain by weight not more than 1
% of aluminium but no other element in a proportion that
would give the steel the characteristics of another alloy
steel.

(d) High speed steel

Alloy steels containing, with or without other elements, at
least two of the three elements molybdenum, tungsten and
vanadium with a combined content by weight of 7 % or
more, 0.6 % or more of carbon and 3 to 6 % of chromium.

(e) Silico-manganese steel

Alloy steels containing by weight:

- not more than 0.7 % of carbon,

- 0.5 % or more but not more than 1.9 % of manganese,
and

- 0.6 % or more but not more than 2.3 % of silicon, but no
other element in a proportion that would give the steel
the characteristics of another alloy steel.

2.- For the classification of ferro-alloys in the subheadings of
heading 72.02 the following rule should be observed:

A ferro-alloy is considered as binary and classified under the
relevant subheading (if it exists) if only one of the alloy elements
exceeds the minimum percentage laid down in Chapter Note 1
(c); by analogy, it is considered respectively as ternary or
quaternary if two or three alloy elements exceed the minimum
percentage.

For the application of this rule the unspecified "other
elements" referred to in Chapter Note 1 (c) must each exceed 10
% by weight.

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

338

Metallic substances other than unrefined copper in which
copper predominates by weight over each of the other
elements, provided that:

(i) the content by weight of at least one of the other
elements is greater than the limit specified in the
foregoing table; or

(ii) the total content by weight of such other elements
exceeds 2.5 %.

(c) Master alloys

Alloys containing with other elements more than 10 % by
weight of copper, not usefully malleable and commonly
used as an additive in the manufacture of other alloys or as
de-oxidants, de-sulphurising agents or for similar uses in
the metallurgy of non-ferrous metals. However, copper
phosphide (phosphor copper) containing more than 15 % by
weight of phosphorus falls in heading 28.48.

(d) Bars and rods

Rolled, extruded, drawn or forged products, not in coils,
which have a uniform solid cross-section along their whole
length in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including
squares), equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons
(including “flattened circles” and “modified rectangles”, of
which two opposite sides are convex arcs, the other two
sides being straight, of equal length and parallel). Products
with a rectangular (including square), triangular or
polygonal cross-section may have corners rounded along
their whole length. The thickness of such products which
have a rectangular (including “modified rectangular”) cross-
section exceeds one-tenth of the width. The expression also
covers cast or sintered products, of the same forms and
dimensions, which have been subsequently worked after
production (otherwise than by simple trimming or de-
scaling), provided that they have not thereby assumed the
character of articles or products of other headings.

Wire-bars and billets with their ends tapered or
otherwise worked simply to facilitate their entry into
machines for converting them into, for example, drawing
stock (wire-rod) or tubes, are however to be taken to be
unwrought copper of heading 74.03.

(e) Profiles

Rolled, extruded, drawn, forged or formed products, coiled
or not, of a uniform cross-section along their whole length,

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

339

which do not conform to any of the definitions of bars, rods,
wire, plates, sheets, strip, foil, tubes or pipes. The
expression also covers cast or sintered products, of the
same forms, which have been subsequently worked after
production (otherwise than by simple trimming or de-
scaling), provided that they have not thereby assumed the
character of articles or products of other headings.

(f) Wire

Rolled, extruded or drawn products, in coils, which have a
uniform solid cross-section along their whole length in the
shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares),
equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons (including
“flattened circles” and “modified rectangles”, of which two
opposite sides are convex arcs, the other two sides being
straight, of equal length and parallel). Products with a
rectangular (including square), triangular or polygonal
cross-section may have corners rounded along their whole
length. The thickness of such products which have a
rectangular (including “modified rectangular”) cross-section
exceeds one-tenth of the width.

In the case of heading 74.14, however, the term “wire”
applies only to products, whether or not in coils, of any
cross-sectional shape, of which no cross-sectional
dimension exceeds 6 mm.

(g) Plates, sheets, strip and foil

Flat-surfaced products (other than the unwrought products
of heading 74.03), coiled or not, of solid rectangular (other
than square) cross-section with or without rounded corners
(including “modified rectangles” of which two opposite sides
are convex arcs, the other two sides being straight, of equal
length and parallel) of a uniform thickness, which are:

- of rectangular (including square) shape with a thickness
not exceeding one-tenth of the width,

- of a shape other than rectangular or square, of any size,
provided that they do not assume the character of
articles or products of other headings.

Headings 74.09 and 74.10 apply, inter alia, to plates,
sheets, strip and foil with patterns (for example, grooves,
ribs, chequers, tears, buttons, lozenges) and to such
products which have been perforated, corrugated, polished
or coated, provided that they do not thereby assume the
character of articles or products of other headings.

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

(h) Tubes and pipes

Hollow products, coiled or not, which have a uniform cross-
section with only one enclosed void along their whole length
in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares),
equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons, and which
have a uniform wall thickness. Products with a rectangular
(including square), equilateral triangular or regular convex
polygonal cross-section, which may have corners rounded
along their whole length, are also to be taken to be tubes
and pipes provided the inner and outer cross-sections are
concentric and have the same form and orientation. Tubes
and pipes of the foregoing cross-sections may be polished,
coated, bent, threaded, drilled, waisted, expanded, cone-
shaped or fitted with flanges, collars or rings.

Subheading Note.

1.- In this Chapter the following expressions have the meanings
hereby assigned to them:

(a) Copper-zinc base alloys (brasses)

Alloys of copper and zinc, with or without other elements.
When other elements are present:

- zinc predominates by weight over each of such other
elements;

- any nickel content by weight is less than 5 % (see
copper-nickel-zinc alloys (nickel silvers)); and

- any tin content by weight is less than 3 % (see copper-
tin alloys (bronzes)).

(b) Copper-tin base alloys (bronzes)

Alloys of copper and tin, with or without other elements.
When other elements are present, tin predominates by
weight over each of such other elements, except that when
the tin content is 3 % or more the zinc content by weight
may exceed that of tin but must be less than 10 %.

(c) Copper-nickel-zinc base alloys (nickel silvers)

Alloys of copper, nickel and zinc, with or without other
elements. The nickel content is 5 % or more by weight (see
copper-zinc alloys (brasses)).

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

1.- In this Chapter the following expressions have the meanings
hereby assigned to them:

(a) Bars and rods

Rolled, extruded, drawn or forged products, not in coils,
which have a uniform solid cross-section along their whole
length in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including
squares), equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons
(including "flattened circles" and "modified rectangles", of
which two opposite sides are convex arcs, the other two
sides being straight, of equal length and parallel). Products
with a rectangular (including square), triangular or
polygonal cross-section may have corners rounded along
their whole length. The thickness of such products which
have a rectangular (including "modified rectangular") cross-
section exceeds one-tenth of the width. The expression also
covers cast or sintered products, of the same forms and
dimensions, which have been subsequently worked after
production (otherwise than by simple trimming or de-
scaling), provided that they have not thereby assumed the
character of articles or products of other headings.

(b) Profiles

Rolled, extruded, drawn, forged or formed products, coiled
or not, of a uniform cross-section along their whole length,
which do not conform to any of the definitions of bars, rods,
wire, plates, sheets, strip, foil, tubes or pipes. The
expression also covers cast or sintered products, of the
same forms, which have been subsequently worked after
production (otherwise than by simple trimming or de-
scaling), provided that they have not thereby assumed the
character of articles or products of other headings.

(c) Wire

Rolled, extruded or drawn products, in coils, which have a
uniform solid cross-section along their whole length in the
shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares),

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons (including
“flattened circles” and “modified rectangles”, of which two
opposite sides are convex arcs, the other two sides being
straight, of equal length and parallel). Products with a
rectangular (including square), triangular or polygonal
cross-section may have corners rounded along their whole
length. The thickness of such products which have a
rectangular (including “modified rectangular”) cross-section
exceeds one-tenth of the width.

(d) Plates, sheets, strip and foil

Flat-surfaced products (other than the unwrought products
of heading 75.02), coiled or not, of solid rectangular (other
than square) cross-section with or without rounded corners
(including “modified rectangles” of which two opposite sides
are convex arcs, the other two sides being straight, of equal
length and parallel) of a uniform thickness, which are:

- of rectangular (including square) shape with a thickness
not exceeding one-tenth of the width,

- of a shape other than rectangular or square, of any size,
provided that they do not assume the character of
articles or products of other headings.

Heading 75.06 applies, inter alia, to plates, sheets, strip
and foil with patterns (for example, grooves, ribs, chequers,
tears, buttons, lozenges) and to such products which have
been perforated, corrugated, polished or coated, provided
that they do not thereby assume the character of articles or
products of other headings.

(e) Tubes and pipes

Hollow products, coiled or not, which have a uniform cross-
section with only one enclosed void along their whole length
in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares),
equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons, and which
have a uniform wall thickness. Products with a rectangular
(including square), equilateral triangular, or regular convex
polygonal cross-section, which may have corners rounded
along their whole length, are also to be considered as tubes
and pipes provided the inner and outer cross-sections are
concentric and have the same form and orientation. Tubes
and pipes of the foregoing cross-sections may be polished,

1.- In this Chapter the following expressions have the meanings
hereby assigned to them:

(a) Bars and rods

Rolled, extruded, drawn or forged products, not in coils,
which have a uniform solid cross-section along their whole
length in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including
squares), equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons
(including “flattened circles” and “modified rectangles”, of
which two opposite sides are convex arcs, the other two
sides being straight, of equal length and parallel). Products
with a rectangular (including square), triangular or
polygonal cross-section may have corners rounded along
their whole length. The thickness of such products which
have a rectangular (including “modified rectangular”) cross-
section exceeds one-tenth of the width. The expression also
covers cast or sintered products, of the same forms and
dimensions, which have been subsequently worked after
production (otherwise than by simple trimming or de-
scaling), provided that they have not thereby assumed the
character of articles or products of other headings.

(b) Profiles

Rolled, extruded, drawn, forged or formed products, coiled
or not, of a uniform cross-section along their whole length,
which do not conform to any of the definitions of bars, rods,
wire, plates, sheets, strip, foil, tubes or pipes. The
expression also covers cast or sintered products, of the
same forms, which have been subsequently worked after
production (otherwise than by simple trimming or de-
scaling), provided that they have not thereby assumed the
character of articles or products of other headings.

(c) Wire

Rolled, extruded or drawn products, in coils, which have a
uniform solid cross-section along their whole length in the
shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares),

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

363

equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons (including
“flattened circles” and “modified rectangles”, of which two
opposite sides are convex arcs, the other two sides being
straight, of equal length and parallel). Products with a
rectangular (including square), triangular or polygonal
cross-section may have corners rounded along their whole
length. The thickness of such products which have a
rectangular (including “modified rectangular”) cross-section
exceeds one-tenth of the width.

(d) Plates, sheets, strip and foil

Flat-surfaced products (other than the unwrought products
of heading 80.01), coiled or not, of solid rectangular (other
than square) cross-section with or without rounded corners
(including "modified rectangles" of which two opposite sides
are convex arcs, the other two sides being straight, of equal
length and parallel) of a uniform thickness, which are:

- of rectangular (including square) shape with a
thickness not exceeding one-tenth of the width,

- of a shape other than rectangular or square, of any
size, provided that they do not assume the character of
articles or products of other headings.

Headings 80.04 and 80.05 apply, inter alia, to plates,
sheets, strip and foil with patterns (for example, grooves,
ribs, chequers, tears, buttons, lozenges) and to such
products which have been perforated, corrugated, polished
or coated, provided that they do not thereby assume the
character of articles or products of other headings.

(e) Tubes and pipes

Hollow products, coiled or not, which have a uniform cross-
section with only one enclosed void along their whole length
in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares),
equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons, and which
have a uniform wall thickness. Products with a rectangular
(including square), equilateral triangular or regular convex
polygonal cross-section, which may have corners rounded
along their whole length, are also to be considered as tubes
and pipes provided the inner and outer cross-sections are
concentric and have the same form and orientation. Tubes
and pipes of the foregoing cross-sections may be polished,
coated, bent, threaded, drilled, waisted, expanded, cone-
shaped or fitted with flanges, collars or rings.

Notes.

1.- This Chapter does not cover :

(a) Electrically warmed blankets, bed pads, foot-muffs or the
like; electrically warmed clothing, footwear or ear pads or
other electrically warmed articles worn on or about the
person;

(b) Articles of glass of heading 70.11; or

(c) Electrically heated furniture of Chapter 94.

2.- Headings 85.01 to 85.04 do not apply to goods described in
heading 85.11, 85.12, 85.40, 85.41 or 85.42.

However, metal tank mercury arc rectifiers remain classified in
heading 85.04.

3.- Heading 85.09 covers only the following electro-mechanical
machines of the kind commonly used for domestic purposes:

(a) Vacuum cleaners, including dry and wet vacuum cleaner
floor polishers, food grinders and mixers, and fruit or
vegetable juice extractors, of any weight;

(b) Other machines provided the weight of such machines does
not exceed 20 kg.

The heading does not, however, apply to fans or ventilating or
recycling hoods incorporating a fan, whether or not fitted with
filters (heading 84.14), centrifugal clothes-dryers (heading
84.21), dish washing machines (heading 84.22), household
washing machines (heading 84.50), roller or other ironing
machines (heading 84.20 or 84.51), sewing machines (heading

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

402

84.52), electric scissors (heading 85.67) or to electro-thermic
appliances (heading 85.16).

4.- For the purposes of heading 85.34 "printed circuits" are circuits
obtained by forming on an insulating base, by any printing
process (for example, embossing, plating-up, etching) or by the
"film circuit" technique, conductor elements, contacts or other
printed components (for example, inductances, resistors,
capacitors) alone or interconnected according to a pre-
established pattern, other than elements which can produce,
rectify, modulate or amplify an electrical signal (for example,
semiconductor elements).

The expression "printed circuits" does not cover circuits
combined with elements other than those obtained during the
printing process, nor does it cover individual, discrete resistors,
capacitors or inductances. Printed circuits may, however, be
fitted with non-printed connecting elements.

Thin- or thick-film circuits comprising passive and active
elements obtained during the same technological process are to
be classified in heading 85.42.

5.- For the purposes of headings 85.41 and 85.42 :

(A) “Diodes, transistors and similar semiconductor devices” are
semiconductor devices the operation of which depends on
variations in resistivity on the application of an electric
field;

(B) “Electronic integrated circuits and microassemblies” are :

(a) Monolithic integrated circuits in which the circuit
elements (diodes, transistors, resistors, capacitors,
interconnections, etc.) are created in the mass
(essentially) and on the surface of a semiconductor
material (doped silicon, for example) and are
inseparably associated;

(b) Hybrid integrated circuits in which passive elements
(resistors, capacitors, interconnections, etc.), obtained
by thin- or thick-film technology, and active elements
(diodes, transistors, monolithic integrated circuits,
etc.), obtained by semiconductor technology, are
combined to all intents and purposes indivisibly, on a
single insulating substrate (glass, ceramic, etc.). These
circuits may also include discrete components;

CUSTOMS TARIFF AMENDMENT (No 2) ACT 2000

403

(c) Microassemblies of the moulded module, micromodule
or similar types, consisting of discrete, active or both
active and passive, components which are combined
and interconnected.

For the classification of the articles defined in this Note,
headings 85.41 and 85.42 shall take precedence over any other
heading in the Nomenclature which might cover them by
reference to, in particular, their function.

6.- Records, tapes and other media of heading 85.23 or 85.24
remain classified in those headings, when presented with the
apparatus for which they are intended.

This Note does not apply to such media when they are present
with articles other than the apparatus for which they are
intended.

7.- For the purposes of heading 85.48, "spent primary cells, spent
primary batteries and spent electric accumulators" are those
which are neither usable as such because of breakage, cutting-
up, wear or other reasons, nor capable of being recharged.
