Section XV - Chapter 80
Tin and Articles Thereof
Notes
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 8001), 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.
(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 following expressions have the meanings hereby assigned to them:
(a). Tin, not alloyed
Metal containing by weight at least 99 percent of tin, provided that the content by
weight of any bismuth or copper is less than the limit specified in the following table:
Table - Other elements
Element Limiting content percent by weight
Bi Bismuth 0.1
Cu Copper 0.4
(b). Tin alloys
Metallic substances in which tin predominates by weight over each of the other
elements, provided that:
(i). The total content by weight of such other elements exceeds 1 percent; or
(ii). The content by weight of either bismuth or copper is equal to or greater than
the limit specified in the foregoing table.
