2011 Schedule B - Chapter 75

Section XV - Chapter 75

Nickel and Articles Thereof

Note

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 descaling), 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 descaling), 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), 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 7502), 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 of products of other headings.

       Heading 7506 applies, inter alia, to plates, sheets, strip and foil with patterns (for
        example, grooves, ribs, checkers, 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 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, wasted, 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). Nickel, not alloyed

       Metal containing by weight at least 99 percent of nickel plus cobalt, provided that:

      (i).   The cobalt content by weight does not exceed 1.5 percent, and

      (ii).  The content by weight of any other element does not exceed the limit
              specified in the following table:

             Table - Other elements

             Element                  Limiting content percent by weight
             Fe     Iron              0.5
             O      Oxygen            0.4
             Other elements, each     0.3

  (b). Nickel alloys

       Metallic substances in which nickel predominates by weight over each of the other
        elements provided that:

      (i).   The content by weight of cobalt exceeds 1.5 percent,

      (ii).  The content by weight of at least one of the other elements is greater than
              the limit specified in the foregoing table, or

      (iii). The total content by weight of elements other than nickel plus cobalt exceeds
              1 percent.

2.  Notwithstanding the provisions of note 1(c), for the purpose of subheading 7508.10 the
     term "wire" applies only to products, whether or not in coils, of any cross-sectional
     shape, of which no cross-sectional dimension exceeds 6mm.
