NOTES

1. This Chapter does not cover:
    (a) Separate chemically defined organic compounds, other than pure methane and propane which are to be classified in 2711;
    (b) Medicaments of 3003 or 3004; or
    (c) Mixed unsaturated hydrocarbons of 3301, 3302 or 3805.


2. References in 2710 to "petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals" include not only petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals but also similar oils, as well as those consisting mainly of mixed unsaturated hydrocarbons, obtained by any process, provided that the weight of the non-aromatic constituents exceeds that of the aromatic constituents. However, the references do not include liquid synthetic polyolefins of which less than 60% by volume distils at 300 degrees Celsius, after conversion to 101.3 kPa when a reduced-pressure distillation method is used (Chapter 39).


3. For the purposes of 2710, "waste oils" means waste containing mainly petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals (as described in Note 2 to this Chapter), whether or not mixed with water. These include:
    (a) Such oils no longer fit for use as primary products (for example, used lubricating oils, used hydraulic oils and used transformer oils);
    (b) Sludge oils from the storage tanks of petroleum oils, mainly containing such oils and a high concentration of additives (for example, chemicals) used in the manufacture of the primary products; and
    (c) Such oils in the form of emulsions in water or mixtures with water, such as those resulting from oil spills, storage tank washings, or from the use of cutting oils for machining operations.

SUBHEADING NOTES

1. For the purposes of 2701.11, "anthracite" means coal having a volatile matter limit (on a dry, mineral-matter-free basis) not exceeding 14%.


2. For the purposes of 2701.12, "bituminous coal" means coal having a volatile matter limit (on a dry, mineral-matter-free basis) exceeding 14% and a calorific value limit (on a moist, mineral-matter-free basis) equal to or greater than 5,833 kcal/kg.


3. For the purposes of 2707.10, 2707.20, 2707.30, 2707.40 and 2707.60, the terms "benzol (benzene)", "toluol (toluene)", "xylol (xylenes)", "naphthalene" and "phenols" apply to products which contain more than 50% by weight of benzene, toluene, xylenes, naphthalene or phenols, respectively.


4. For the purposes of 2710.11, "light oils and preparations" are those of which 90% or more by volume (including losses) distil at 210 degree Celsius (ASTM D86 method).


ADDITIONAL NOTES

1. For the purposes of 2710, the physical characteristics of fuel oil are:
    (a) a density equal to or greater than 920.0 kg/m3 at 15 degrees Celsius as determined by either ASTM D1298 or ASTM D4052; and
    (b) a carbon residue, on the whole sample, of at least 2.0% mass as determined by ASTM D189 (Conradson Carbon Residue) or by ASTM D4530 (Carbon Residue-Micro Method); and
    (c) a minimum kinematic viscosity of 10 centistokes (mm2 per second) at 50 degrees Celsius as determined by ASTM D445.


2. For the purposes of 2707, 2709 and 2710, the proportion of the marker is the proportion prescribed by regulations made under Section 5C of the Excise Tariff Act 1921 for the purposes of that Tariff.
