NOTES

1. This Chapter applies only to made up articles of any textile fabric other than wadding, excluding knitted or crocheted articles (other than those of 6212).


2. This Chapter does not cover:
    (a) Worn clothing or other worn articles of 6309;
    (b) Orthopaedic appliances, surgical belts, trusses or the like (9021).


3. For the purposes of 6203 and 6204:
    (a) "Suit" means a set of garments composed of two or three pieces made up, in respect of their outer surface, in identical fabric and comprising:

    - one suit coat or jacket the outer shell of which, exclusive of sleeves, consists of four or more panels, designed to cover the upper part of the body, possibly with a tailored waistcoat in addition whose front is made from the same fabric as the outer surface of the other components of the set and whose back is made from the same fabric as the lining of the suit coat or jacket; and

    - one garment designed to cover the lower part of the body and consisting of trousers, breeches or shorts (other than swimwear), a skirt or a divided skirt, having neither braces nor bibs.

    All of the components of a "suit" must be of the same fabric construction, colour and composition; they must also be of the same style and of corresponding or compatible size. However, these components may have piping (a strip of fabric sewn into the seam) in a different fabric.

    If several separate components to cover the lower part of the body are presented together (for example, two pairs of trousers or trousers and shorts, or a skirt or divided skirt and trousers) the constituent lower part shall be one pair of trousers or, in the case of women's or girls' suits, the skirt or divided skirt, the other garments being considered separately.


    "Suit" includes the following sets of garments, whether or not they fulfil all the above conditions:

    - morning dress, comprising a plain jacket (cutaway) with rounded tails hanging well down at the back and striped trousers;

    - evening dress (tailcoat), generally made of black fabric, the jacket of which is relatively short at the front, does not close and has narrow skirts cut in at the hips and hanging down behind;

    - dinner jacket suits, in which the jacket is similar in style to an ordinary jacket (though perhaps revealing more of the shirt front), but has shiny silk or imitation silk lapels.
    (b) "Ensemble" means a set of garments (other than suits and articles of 6207 or 6208) composed of several pieces made up in identical fabric, put up for retail sale, and comprising:

    - one garment designed to cover the upper part of the body, with the exception of waistcoats which may also form a second upper garment, and

    - one or two different garments, designed to cover the lower part of the body and consisting of trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches, shorts (other than swimwear), a skirt or a divided skirt.

    All of the components of an ensemble must be of the same fabric construction, style, colour and composition; they also must be of corresponding or compatible size. "Ensembles" does not apply to track suits or ski suits, of 6211.


4. For the purposes of 6209:
    (a) "Babies' garments and clothing accessories" means articles for young children of a body height not exceeding 86 cm; it also covers babies' napkins;
    (b) Articles which are, prima facie, classifiable both in 6209 and in other headings of this Chapter are to be classified in 6209.


5. Garments which are, prima facie, classifiable both in 6210 and in other headings of this Chapter, excluding 6209, are to be classified in 6210.


6. For the purposes of 6211, "ski suits" means garments or sets of garments which, by their general appearance and texture, are identifiable as intended to be worn principally for skiing (cross-country or alpine). They consist either of:
    (a) a "ski overall", that is, a one-piece garment designed to cover the upper and the lower parts of the body; in addition to sleeves and a collar the ski overall may have pockets or footstraps; or
    (b) a "ski ensemble", that is, a set of garments composed of two or three pieces, put up for retail sale and comprising:

    - one garment such as an anorak, wind-cheater, wind-jacket or similar article, closed by a slide fastener (zipper), possibly with a waistcoat in addition, and

    - one pair of trousers whether or not extending above waist-level, one pair of breeches or one bib and brace overall.

    The "ski ensemble" may also consist of an overall similar to the one mentioned in paragraph (a) above and atype of padded, sleeveless jacket worn over the overall.

    All the components of a "ski ensemble" must be made up in a fabric of the same texture, style and composition whether or not of the same colour; they also must be of corresponding or compatible size.


7. Scarves and articles of the scarf type, square or approximately square, of which no side exceeds 60 cm, are to be classified as handkerchiefs (6213). Handkerchiefs of which any side exceeds 60 cm are to be classified in 6214.


8. Garments of this Chapter designed for left over right closure at the front shall be regarded as men's or boys' garments, and those designed for right over left closure at the front as women's or girls' garments. These provisions do not apply where the cut of the garment clearly indicates that it is designed for one or other of the sexes.

Garments which cannot be identified as either men's or boys' garments or as women's or girls' garments are to be classified in the headings coverings women's or girls' garments.



9. Articles of this Chapter may be made of metal thread.


ADDITIONAL NOTE

1. (a) In 6212, "brassieres, girdles, corsets, braces, suspenders, garters and similar articles" include undergarments, being pants, made of elastomeric fabric:

- the base fabric of which contains 20% or more of elastomeric fibres; and

- the length of each side of which is 18 cm or more (excluding any added trimmings),

but does not include other pants made of elastomeric fabric.


(b) For the purpose of Sub-Note (a):
