THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff (1), and in particular Article 9(1)(a) thereof,

Those rules apply also to any other nomenclature which is wholly or partly based on it or which adds any additional subdivision to it and which is established by specific provisions of the Union, with a view to the application of tariff and other measures relating to trade in goods.

(3)

Pursuant to those general rules, the goods described in column (1) of the table set out in the Annex should be classified under the CN code indicated in column (2), by virtue of the reasons set out in column (3) of that table.

(4)

It is appropriate to provide that binding tariff information issued in respect of the goods concerned by this Regulation which does not conform to this Regulation may, for a certain period, continue to be invoked by the holder in accordance with Article 12(6) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 (2). That period should be set at three months.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Customs Code Committee,

Article 1

The goods described in column (1) of the table set out in the Annex shall be classified within the Combined Nomenclature under the CN code indicated in column (2) of that table.

Article 2

Binding tariff information which does not conform to this Regulation may continue to be invoked in accordance with Article 12(6) of Regulation (EEC) No 2913/92 for a period of three months from the date of entry into force of this Regulation.

Article 3

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

ANNEX

Description of the goods

Classification

(CN code)

Reasons

(1)

(2)

(3)

A cylindrical hollow product of aluminium, tapered at one end (nipples) and equipped with a lever lock ring.

The product is presented as a coupling for hoses.

 (1) See image.

7609 00 00

Classification is determined by general rule 1 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature and by the wording of CN code 7609 00 00.

Heading 7609 covers couplings for connecting the bores of two tubes (see also the Harmonized System Explanatory Notes to heading 7609 and heading 7307). As hoses are considered a kind of tube, couplings for hoses also fall under the scope of this heading.

As the product is covered by one of the headings of Chapter 76 its classification under heading 7616 as other articles of aluminium is excluded.

The product is therefore to be classified under CN code 7609 00 00 as aluminium tube or pipe fittings.
