2.   For the purposes of headings 7003, 7004 and 7005:                                              
     (a). Glass is not regarded as "worked" by reason of any process it has undergone               
           before annealing;                                                                        
     (b). Cutting to shape does not affect the classification of glass in sheets;                   
     (c). The expression "absorbent, reflecting or non-reflecting layer" means a                    
          microscopically thin coating of metal or of a chemical compound (for example,             
           metal oxide)  which absorbs, for example, infrared light; or improves the                
           reflecting qualities of the glass while still allowing it to retain a degree of          
           transparency or translucency; or which prevents light from being reflected on the        
           surface of the glass.                                                                    
                                                                                                    
3.   The products referred to in heading 7006 remain classified in that heading whether or          
      not they have the character of articles.                                                      
                                                                                                    
4.   For the purposes of heading 7019, the expression "glass wool" means:                           
     (a). Mineral wools with a silica (SiO2) content not less than 60 percent by weight;            
                   Section  XIII - Chapter 70                                                       
     (b). Mineral wools with a silica (SiO2) content less than 60 percent but with an alkaline      
           oxide (K2O or Na2O) content exceeding 5 percent by weight or a boric oxide               
           (B2O3) content exceeding 2 percent by weight. 
                                           
          Mineral wools which do not comply with the above specifications fall in heading           
          6806.                                                                                         
                                                                                                    
5.   Throughout the Schedule B, the expression "glass" includes fused quartz and other fused        
      silica.

Statistical Notes                                                                                   
                                                                                                    
1.   For the purposes of this chapter the term "fused quartz or other fused silica" means           
      glass containing more than 95 percent silica by weight.                                       
                                                                                                    
2.   For the purposes of headings 7003 through 7005, the expression "colored throughout             
      the mass" refers to glass that has a transmittance of normally incident light of less than    
      66 percent at one or more wavelengths from 400 to 700 millimicrons, inclusive, or a           
      transmittance of less than 80 percent at one or more wavelengths from 525 to 575              
      millimicrons, inclusive, for glass 6.35 mm (0.25 inch) in thickness, or of the equivalent     
      transmittances for any other thickness, provided that, in determining such light              
      transmittances, the effect of surface irregularities or configurations, or of other surface   
      treatment (except flashing applied prior to solidification), and the effect of wire netting   
      within the glass, shall be eliminated.                                                        
                                                                                                    
3.   For the purposes of heading 7005, the expression "polished", as used with reference to         
      glass, refers to glass one or both of the surfaces of which have been made smooth and         
      glossy, in whole or in part, by abrasive or chemical means, or by floating the glass over     
      molten metal.                                                                                 
                                                                                                    
4.   For the purposes of subheading 7018.10, the term "imitation precious or semiprecious           
      stones" means glass made into shapes suitable for use in jewelry or for other ornamental      
      purposes in a manner similar to natural gemstones, whether or not in imitation thereof,       
      but does not include natural gemstones, synthetic gemstones, reconstructed natural            
      gemstones ro imitation pearls.                                                                
                                                                                                    
5.   For the purposes of headings 7003 and 7004, in determining the surface area of cast or         
      rolled glass having irregular surfaces (such as corrugated glass), superficial area shall be  
      used.
