ANNEX

Description of the goods

Classification

(CN-code)

Reasons

(1)

(2)

(3)

1.

Set for nail decorating consisting of:

 

48 false nails

 

a small tube of glue

 

a nail file

 

a manicure stick and

 

decorating stickers for the nails.

The false nails are moulded plastic and are present in a variety of sizes.

The set is put up for retail sale.

3926 90 97

Classification is determined by General Rules 1, 3(b) and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature, and by the wording of CN codes 3926, 3926 90 and 3926 90 97.

The articles, as presented, constitute a set in the sense of general interpretative rule 3(b).

The set does not consist of manicure products of subheading 3304 30 00 as it includes the addition of false nails stuck over the fingernail and does not include manicure preparations which simply care for and beautify the hand and the natural nails (Harmonised System Explanatory Notes to heading 3304, (B)).

The set consists of different articles and is to be classified in subheading 3926 90 97 according to the plastic false nails, which give the set its essential character.

2.

Moulded plastic false nails.

They are designed to be bound to the natural nail using an acrylic bonding solution.

They are packaged in quantities of 50, of the same size.

3926 90 97

Classification is determined by General Rules 1 and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature, and by the wording of CN codes 3926, 3926 90 and 3926 90 97.

The products are not considered to constitute manicure products of subheading 3304 30 00 as they entail the addition of false nails stuck over the fingernail and do not consist of manicure preparations which simply care for and beautify the hand and the natural nails (Harmonised System Explanatory Notes to heading 3304, (B)).

They should therefore be classified as other articles of plastic in subheading 3926 90 97 according to their constituent material.

3.

Bonding solution composed of:

 

Ethyl cyanoacrylate

 

Silica

 

Poly(methyl methacrylate)

 

Calixarenes

 

Hydroquinone

 

Triglycerides.

The solution is intended to adhere moulded plastic false nails to the natural nail. It hardens slowly to allow modelling of the false nails.

The solution is packaged in small nozzled tubes for easy and precise application. Net weight not exceeding 1 kg.

3506 10 00

Classification is determined by General Rules 1 and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature, and by the wording of CN codes 3506 and 3506 10 00.

The product is not considered to constitute manicure or pedicure preparations of heading 3304.

The product is a glue or adhesive by the terms of heading 3506.
