2.  Subject to note 1 above, parts and accessories for machines, apparatus, instruments or
     articles of this chapter are to be classified according to the following rules:

  (a). Parts and accessories which are goods included in any of the headings of this
        chapter or of chapter 84, 85 or 91 (other than heading 8487, 8548 or 9033) are in all
        cases to be classified in their respective headings;

  (b). Other parts and accessories, if suitable for use solely or principally with a particular
        kind of machine, instrument or apparatus, or with a number of machines,
        instruments or apparatus of the same heading (including a machine, instrument or

        instruments or apparatus of that kind;

  (c). All other parts and accessories are to be classified in heading 9033.

3.  The provisions of notes 3 and 4 to section XVI apply also to this chapter.

4.  Heading 9005 does not apply to telescopic sights for fitting to arms, periscopic telescopes
     for fitting to submarines or tanks, or to telescopes for machines, appliances, instruments or
     apparatus of this chapter or section XVI; such telescopic sights and telescopes are to be
     classified in heading 9013.

5.  Measuring or checking optical instruments, appliances or machines which, but for this note,
     could be classified both in heading 9013 and in heading 9031 are to be classified in heading
     9031.

6.  For the purposes of heading 9021, the expression "orthopedic appliances" means appliances
     for:

  (a). Preventing or correcting bodily deformities; or

  (b). Supporting or holding parts of the body following an illness, operations or injury.

    Orthopedic appliances include footwear and special insoles designed to correct orthopedic
     conditions, provided that they are either (1) made to measure or (2) mass-produced, entered
     singly and not in pairs and designed to fit either foot equally.

7.  Heading 9032 applies only to:

  (a). Instruments and apparatus for automatically controlling the flow, level, pressure or
        other variables of liquids or gases, or for automatically controlling temperature,
        whether or not their operation depends on an electrical phenomenon which varies
        according to the factor to be automatically controlled, which are designed to bring
        this factor to, and maintain it at, a desired value, stabilized against disturbances, by
        constantly or periodically measuring its actual value.

  (b). Automatic regulators of electrical quantities, and instruments or apparatus for
        automatically controlling non-electrical quantities the operation of which depends
        on a electrical phenomenon varying according to the factor to be controlled, which
        are designed to bring this factor to, and maintain it at, a desired value, stabilized
        against disturbances, by constantly or periodically measuring its actual value.

Statistical Notes

1.  For statistical reporting purposes under subheading 9001.10, the unit of quantity "fib m"
     (fiber meters), as it pertains to optical fiber bundles and cables, is determined by multiplyin
     the number of individual fibers contained therein by the length in meters.

2.  For the purpose of headings 9001 and 9002, the term "optically worked" refers to glass the
     surface of which has been ground or polished in order to produce the required optical
     properties.

3.  For the purpose of this chapter, the term "electrical" when used in reference to instruments,
     appliances, apparatus and machines, refers to those articles the operation of which depends
     on an electrical phenomenon which varies according to the factor to be ascertained.

4.  For the purpose of this chapter, the terms "optical appliances" and "optical instruments"
     refer only to those appliances and instruments which incorporate one or more optical
     elements, but do not include any appliances or instruments in which the incorporated
     optical elements are solely for viewing a scale or for some other subsidiary purpose.
