THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 October 2013 laying down the Union Customs Code (1), and in particular Article 57(4) and Article 58(2) thereof,

(2)

Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 has laid down the general rules for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature.

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 34(9) of Regulation (EU) No 952/2013. 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 3

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

(2)  Council Regulation (EEC) No 2658/87 of 23 July 1987 on the tariff and statistical nomenclature and on the Common Customs Tariff (OJ L 256, 7.9.1987, p. 1).


ANNEX

Description of the goods

Classification

(CN code)

Reasons

(1)

(2)

(3)

An article consisting of different insulated electric wires made of copper, bundled together, specially designed for installation of a fixed hands-free, voice-controlled, touchscreen device (referred to as a car kit) in a motor vehicle.

The article includes two fuses and different connectors, including bullet connectors. The exact composition of the article (the number of wires and specific connectors) depends on the specific model of the motor vehicle.

Upon installation, the article interconnects the existing cabling of the car radio system with the car kit (which enables operation of a Bluetooth connected mobile phone).

This allows for the transmission of electric signals from the car kit to the car radio system (also to mute other sounds during phone calls) and provides a power supply.

8544 30 00

Classification is determined by general rules 1 and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature and by the wording of CN codes 8544 and 8544 30 00 .

The article consists of wires of heading 8544 made up in a set (see also the Harmonised System Explanatory Notes to heading 8544 , eighth paragraph, last sentence).

The article is also specially designed for installation in a motor vehicle to create an interconnection between various apparatuses of the motor vehicle and to conduct electricity and electric signals.

The article has therefore the objective characteristics of ‘other wiring sets of a kind used in vehicles’ of CN code 8544 30 00 . Classification under subheading 8544 42 as ‘other electric conductors, for a voltage not exceeding 1 000 V, fitted with connectors’ is consequently excluded.

The article is therefore to be classified under CN code 8544 30 00 as ‘other wiring sets of a kind used in vehicles, aircraft or ships’.
