Explanatory Notes to the Combined Nomenclature of the European Union

(2018/C 362/04)

Pursuant to Article 9(1)(a) of Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 (1), the Explanatory Notes to the Combined Nomenclature of the European Union (2) are hereby amended as follows:

On page 383

‘9506

Articles and equipment for general physical exercise, gymnastics, athletics, other sports (including table tennis) or outdoor games, not specified or included elsewhere in this chapter; swimming pools and paddling pools’

The following text shall be added after the existing text:

‘This heading does not include resistance bands, fitness bands or similar products without handles. They are usually packed individually or in packs of two or more for retail sale. They are available in different colours and sizes and may have imprints. According to their objective characteristics, these bands are not identifiable as articles for general physical exercise. Consequently, they are to be classified according to their constituent material, for example in heading 4008 as “strips of non-cellular rubber” (See also note 1 and note 9 to Chapter 40).
