2011 Schedule B - Chapter 78

                                   Section XV - Chapter 78

                                  Lead 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 7801),
       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 7804 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 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.

Subheading Note

1.  In this chapter the expression "refined lead" means:
    Metal containing by weight at least 99.9 percent of lead, provided that 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

  Cu     Copper                      0.08
  Fe     Iron                        0.002
  S      Sulphur                     0.002
  Sb     Antimony                    0.005
  Sn     Tin                         0.005
  Zn     Zinc                        0.002
  Other (for example Te), each       0.001

Statistical Note

1.  For the purposes of this chapter, "alloys of lead" are metals in which the lead content
  is, by weight, less than 99 percent, but not less than any other metallic element.
